Hey I just wanted to post this message to give fair warning to people that I will probably be posting a lot of questions in the near future.

I am starting to do a 4 inch lift on my 82 GL wagon tomarow. Ive put a lot of research into this project and I think I have a pretty good idea what Im getting into. Im using 2X4 tubing.

If anyone has any helpful pointers I would love to hear them. Talk to you soon.

You can use 2x3 tubing for the leading rod plates - gives better clearance, and cheaper.

Also - rather than using bolts that go all the way through, use the original bolts for the top of the block, and new short bolts for the bottom of it. This way they won't loosen nearly as easily, and the bolts are MUCH cheaper.

Use ONLY 1/4" wall or thicker - anything less will deform.

Are you building the lift yourself?
