Kit with stock springs will provide 2.5-3 inch lift depending on motor combo and springs used. We highly recommend at least a 4 inch lift for oil pan, drive line, and exhaust clearance. Exhaust modifications may be needed.
Front hanger allows for up to a 4 inch diameter spring with same size bushings. Rear shackles will accept a 2.5 diameter spring with a 2 inch diameter bushing
Kit is based on 73-87 Chevy front 47 inch leaf springs with a 3 3/4 wide over all width. Some aftermarket springs are narrower and will require a spacer of some variety to make fit correctly. If you are interested in using the 52 inch Chevy rear springs, you will simply lengthen the hangers front to rear to fit them. These springs will require a 3/8ths shim per side to fit correctly in our hangers as they are only 3" wide.
Kit includes front solid axle leaf hanger, rear shackles, rear shackle hangers, bushings for shackles, hardware to bolt springs to hangers, and shackles to shackle hangers.
Kit is a weld on kit, though some customers have drilled the hangers and made them bolt on. This is not recommended by Sky Manufacturing.
