    Squarebody Chevy springs and tires needed

    I'm going to lower the suburban so here is what I am shopping for:

    aluminum 6 lug 15" wheels

    Rear 56" 3/4 ton Chevy springs, stock height

    2" front lift springs

    4 shocks for a 2-4" lift

    1350 rear driveshaft with slip yoke built into the shaft

    33s are really small on a big truck like that.

    Ya, I'm considering 34s or even 35s. I may even go back to factory height but I will have to get stock rear spring hangers since I did a shackle flip. I figure the 33s and a 2"/4" lift will look similar to the 37"s and lift I have now.

    How much lift did you get from just the shackle flip?

    I think 4" but I'm not sure. I know the rear springs are pro comp 6" springs. Wish I knew someone around with a stock burb to take measurements from.

    The only things I do with it are drive to lowe's, drive around for the PA gambler, and drive to out of state gamblers. Going to smaller tires and less lift will make it nicer to drive to all three of those.

    You're not wrong. I bet with just the shackle you could go 35s or run a 16" wheel and 285, or 305 kinda in between a 33 and 35.

    That’s what I was thinking. Leave the shackle flip and run 35s or 36s.

    I might have your driveshaft. I'd had the factory driveshaft of my RC reconditioned, before I had a custom double cardon unit made for it. It's sitting in my garage, gathering spider webs at the moment.
