Tire & Wheel Info
38×14.50 tire on standard offset wheel
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The provided tire/wheel fitments are approximate.
Actual dimensions of a given tire size can vary considerably from one brand to another.
Manufacturers’ wheel offset and backspacing measurement points are not always consistent.
Backspacing greatly impacts tire-to-fender clearance when turning.
Wheel width and backspacing influence whether the tires protrude past the fenders, and to what extent.
Considering these important factors, we recommend that you fit-check your tire/wheel selection prior to purchasing.
We no longer offer a 56″ rear spring for this vehicle. They have been discontinued and are no longer being produced. If your truck is 1973-1987 there should be a second set of holes drilled in the frame to move to the 52″ location.
1977.5-91 models require clearancing (machining) of the front driveshaft CV cluster to prevent binding. If vehicle has single exhaust, the cross-over pipe requires modification to clear front driveshaft.
Optional extended length brake hoses recommended.
Brake line / hose relocating hardware included in kit box.
Both driveshafts need to be lengthened.
Vehicles with 56″ long rear spring can use spring if shackle hanger is relocated on frame for 52″ long application.
88-91 Blazer, Jimmy, and Suburban require additional sleeve kit part # 315-88.
The 8″ lift consists of Heavy Duty (HD) front leaf springs, durable Poly spring bushings, replacement front U-bolts, front sway bar brackets, brake hose relocation brackets, replacement rear leaf springs with Poly bushings and rear u-bolt kit. For steering correction, a 4″ raised steering arm and a 4″ adjustable drag link are also included. The kit is packaged complete with Superlift Superide shock absorbers.
Options include single and dual steering stabilizers, a 4″ rear shackle flip kit and a front driveshaft spacer.
NOTE: If the vehicle is factory-equipped with auxiliary (dual) front shocks also order quantity two, part number 85150 Superide shocks.
NOTE: 88-91 Blazer/Jimmy and Suburban models require additional part number 315-88 bushing sleeve kit.
