Don't come back to me after the lift and beeaatcchhh that I was wrong.....96BroncoEB said:I would like to install a 4 inch lift and put 33's on either 15X10 or 16X10 rims. My question is to anyone who would know how tall would the Bronco become after the lift and tires ?I park in a parking garage downtown and the height limit is 6'10''.
Cool, nice picture of your rig @ the coast. I'm from Oregon too, only alittle inland, OC to be exact.thejuice said:Don't come back to me after the lift and beeaatcchhh that I was wrong.....
But my guess is you will end up between 79 and 80". You will likely be slightly taller when the lift is first installed.

4" suspension on 33"s should be about the same.
But remember the parking garage height may not always be right.
My company used to be in building with a parking garage that mesures 6'-10 so I whent and mesured a fiew spots what I got was inbetween 6'-9" and 7'
from floor to cieling. So I might of gatten away with it, but 1" was just a little to close for my taste. So I used a seperate parking lot next door.

I think I have about 3 or 4 inches of clearance at the lowest point of the garage. But really what you need to do is take a tape measure and measure from the lowest point in the garage and than compare it with your rig's height. Keep in mind to take speed bumps into account as they will add a couple of inches. It's a PITA, I know. Since I'm looking at adding another 3 or 4 inches of lift to my Bronco, I might run into a slight problem. Good luck.
96BroncoEB said:I also thought of a body lift only w/33's. How much time should I allocate to get this done? Also, did you have to do any special work with the brakelines, front suspension, etc?
True but with a suspension lift your frame and everything on it gains ground clearance.84brownbronco said:even with a suspension lift you dont get more clearance. the only way to get more clearance under your axle is with bigger tires.

jermil01 said:No, Brownbronco is right, the only way to gain more clearance is with bigger tire, to accomplish fitting bigger tires, you need the suspension or body lift or combination thereof. The suspension lift will do nothing to raise the height of the lowest point on your rig which is the bottom of your pumpkin.
