Default 2003 LIFT QUESTION ( specific )

Had a lifted 99, then a lifted 01
Both 1500's
My last 1500 had 3" spacers and a 3 " body lift with 37's and I just cleared the header of my garage door (7'1")

I just picked up a 03 1500 QC sport and want to get it to the same height

Just not too sure on the lift options for the IFS


I wanna run 17x10's and I want them to stick out a bit so maybe 4.00 backspacing??
Tires, Probally 37's again but 35's would be fine too
I'll run a 3" body, now I just need to know how much and what kind of suspension lift to get me up to the 7' mark!!

Thanks brathas

4" Superlift should do you just fine with the 35's. If you go much higher, either the truck roof will be dented or the garage door is gonna get bent!

I'd go down to your local tire and wheel shop and have them measure out the offset that gets you a bit of tire on the outside. Most modern wheels have an offset that is measured in millimeters.

So are we talking a 4" Superlift, a 3" Body, and 35's?


Like I said my other one had Offroad Springs, 3" spacers, a 3" Body lift, and 37" tired and I had about a inch of clearance
