Well im finally lifting the '89 tomorrow. ProComp 6". Extended radious arms and the works. Its blocked, but i dont care. Im no hardcore wheeler. A
Anyway doing it tomorrow. Will definetely post pics in the even.

Also it has leafs, thats have one more leaf than stock. I thought that was add-a-leaf, and that was to do away with the blocks??

Wish me luck :thumbup

Drilling the holes in the frame for the radius arms is a BI*%H! Good luck! Im glad I don't have to do that again!

You will love the lift though, even with the blocks.

Part sill hasnt come...

AV.NINE how did you know where to drill the holes for the RA brackets? I figured id have to wait till the whole ttb/ front end
was back on the car and basically drill them where the arms go, if that makes sense.
How did you do them?

No no... Dont do that because your beams will be moving forward and back when you unbolt your radius arm from your beam, if that makes sense. Just measure 15"s back from one of your stock holes (center of the hole) punch it and drill. Put first bolt in with your bracket then basically just drill where your holes are in the radius arm bracket.

I hope that made sense to everyone. Hahaha!

To put it simply measure 15"s back, drill the first hole, then bolt in your bracket (not connected to radius arm) using the 1 bolt hole you just drilled. Your bracket will stay in place so you can drill your other holes.

Invest in a nice drill bit or two (30-40 bucks) and use some cutting fluid for the frame holes.

Okay thankyou ver much that makes total sense. I just wasnt sure how many inches i should put it back.
part still hasnt come...

Also, what do you do about the rear brake line? I have extended lines for the front obviously, but the rear isnt just a take off thing. Do i get some kinda of exstension?
Or do i replace the whole system back there?

keep the drill bit well lubed during drilling, it will last longer and cut better... and make your work alot easier...
