View Poll Results: 4" lift and 33" tires or 6" lift and 35"?
I really need some advice on liftage. I have an '82 F150 Flareside, (300 I6, T18 with granny low, 3:55 gear) and we're in the process of planning the build. After much research on lifts and the TTB front end, and possible alignment problems due to lifting, or the risk of snapping an axle, I'm unsure of the amount of lift the front end will tolerate being subjected to "moderate" 4wheeling. I'm not willing to swap in a solid axle conversion at present.
So, in your opinion, is there much difference (in reliability) between running a 6" lift and 35" tires compared to a 4" lift and 33's? Or should I just settle for a 2" coil spring leveling kit, 31 or 32" tires and call it a day?
I've also read that a lift more than 2 or 4" makes it quite difficult to align the TTB front end, so should this factor rule out the 6" lift?
