March 7, 2006Ok I realy have been trying to get an answer on this board but no one will say...I have 94 burban and I need to lift it so I looked at rough country and found this lift http://roughcountry.com/Chevy_88-98_2-3in.htm its only three inch suspension but what do u think? Any common problems that come along with this lift? I dont want to go to high plus I dont want to spend to much and rough country is a good price.

March 8, 2006The only thing I've ever used or seen used from Rough Country are the 1" blocks in the back of my truck. If you do decide to get it though, check a JC Whitney mag or jcwtruck.com... you can get that kit for $600 with shocks minus some discounts...soon they should do their 15% off thing so that should put it around $510 + $30 ship.
March 8, 2006Well in another thread someone mentioned that the kit I was considering will wear down ball joints quickly and suggested that I do a 4 inch instead. Well why would I do that Wouldnt that wear down the joints just as quick? Please help!!!!
March 8, 2006This lift is not a true suspension lift. It increases the angle of the CV joints and requires torsion bar cranking (makes the ride stiffer, causes parts to wear out quicker, and is harder to keep aligned)...
Every 4" Suspension lift that I have seen for the 88-98 4x4 torsionbar set-up trucks/suvs actually drops the front differential 4"...keeping the CV joint angles the same. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong...
BTW, do a search, there is tons of stuff on this topic...
March 9, 2006The 3" Rough Country lift does come with differential drop brackets, so I think it would be ok.
March 9, 2006Well are my ball joints going to be ok? And would if it were you buying the lift would you just go four inch instead of this three?
