Thanks. The drive train and suspension is off of a 77 K20. It has a 350 with SM465 Transmission, NP205 Transfer case, Dana 44 front and 14 bolt rear with 4:56 gears. I should be done with the interior in a couple of weeks then I'll start on bodywork. Bought it from Colorado and towed it back to Texas. Not too much rust. I to repair a spot in the floor and a rocker panel. Still need to fix the rear cab supports and some minor work on one cab corner. Overall a good truck.

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

It's cool to have the kids involved, I taught both our twin girls to drive a standard with my 71 K10 with 530hp, took a bit but once they caught on could drive anything newer with ease.

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

Finally found a 3 door! Been looking for one for quite a while. Its got typical wheel well rust in the rear as well as the passenger side rockers are really bad. Going to daily drive this one as soon as i fix the transmission. Only reason i could afford it is because reverse is gone! Heading to grab a transmission for it tomorrow! I was going to rebuild the original myself, but found one on craigslist that was rebuilt and never used cheaper than i could buy the rebuild parts.

Eventually i would like to lift it a bit with some bigger tires. For now, just going to install my hand controls, fix the transmission, and make the heat work a bit better!

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

thanks for the boost everyone

still waiting for reply to my email inquiry to Tuff Country regarding old p/n translation on the lift specs..

but either way, there was $1800 of '99 money put under there.. shocks are about all needs replacement I suspect..

maybe one of y'all know more about this? anyone know old numbers? I crapped out on google..

and yes it was known to all previous owners and titled as a '71 although we know different

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

Most any brand add a leaf is about 3" max lift, so front could be a 4" spring lift, back looks higher than 3" though, maybe has a 2" block also, most add a leaves settle in at about 2.5" so could be 5-5.5" in back, hard to tell without being there.

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

The Rancho Shock Part Numbers on your Invoice 9001 / 9112 are the 4 inch lift shocks for 1973 to 1987 Trucks, the front shocks are the same back to 1969 I believe, I believe the rear were different though, but the 9112's are so long, they probably fit anyway.
The invoice says SUP HD springs 01-255, these are Super Lift 6 Inch Lift front Springs for 1967 to 1972 Chevys. So the front shock may be a tad short...
I see an add a leaf for the rear. We would sell a 4 inch block kit, and add a leaf kit when lifting Chevys 6 inches, I don't see a 4 inch block kit though.
There is a Rancho steering stabilizer and bracket listed also.

Hope this helps.

thank you very much for your thoughtful and informative reply!

I guess I'd have to call tuff country, sent a courteous email and two follow ups a week apart.. seemed reasonable..

I'll take some pictures underneath and bounce that off your info to see where it's at..

previous owners may have made changes since that invoiced work but I don't recall seeing any blocks under there..

not my area of expertise by any means so all info much appreciated, thanks again!

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

By the look of the stance of your Burb I would say is has a 6 inch lift. The front must be all springs, which I see it is. The rear can be all springs, or blocks and springs as needed. Definitely take a picture or two of the rear set up and we can see what you have. An add a leaf is uaually a sorter thick leaf found near the bottom of the spring pack. All the stock leaves will be the same thickness, except the bottom overload spring.

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

All the add a leaf kits I buy are a full length minus about 1" each end than the top leaf, the super thick short leaf is an overload, but some companys "try" to seel them as an add a leaf but don't actually lift the truck any more than the thickness of the leaf cause the ends of it doesn't touch the spring above it.
Someone may have had a 4" block they used with the add a leaf in the rear. I keep a bunch of different heights in my shop. Guess you have to look.
