    I have a 1995 3500 cab chassis, 2wd with the 6.5l diesel in it. It has a 8.2 boss v hanging on the front. Ya ya I know not desirable but we threw it together just as a back up to ease my mind a little. Probably wont see much plowing, but just in case what can I do to raise the font end of this truck up. It would most likely be ok, but with employees driving it I want to make certain. I thought about bigger tires but there really isnt much more room in the wheel well to do that. I have seen front coil spring spacer kits to raise it around 2" what do you guys think will this work?? Any other ideas????

    Doesn't your truck have torsion bars? I could be wrong, but I thought even the 1 tons, have torsion bars. Anyhow, climb under the truck and crank up the torsion bars about 4 or 5 turns. That should make a huge difference.

    I will check in the morning but I am pretty sure it does not have bars. My foreman crawled under it today and said there was not.

    No torsion bars on a 95 2wd

    Bigger coils will help, as will Timbrens

    No T-bars on a 2WD GMT400 chassis, they're coil.

    Simply add a set of coil spacers, they're available in 1 1/2" and work well and adds just the right amount of height for their $35.00 price. Then add a set of Timbrens too of you need a little more carrying capacity.

    Well I got the leveling kit on and it worked great. Just the right amount of height that I needed and now it looks alot better even with out the plow on it. Was alot of work though. When I got into it we ended up replacing the front shocks, all new front brakes and tie rods while I was in there. Now that I got the thing all back together though it is making a poping noise. It only pops when making a hard turn at slow speeds. What is this is it the upper ball joints making this noise??
