there is a pic in the gallery of an early 70's crew cab and in the info for the pic it says that the truck has an i beam flip. Has anyone done this instead of the aftermarket option?

bumping for some info.......seems to be some conflict on the hwo much lift before messing with I beams.

I want maybe 1/12 to 2 " I figure I will be able to keep it in specs . I will be installing new springs at the same time. Any thoughts???

How did you mod the arms? I was looking in one members gallery where he extended the radius arm and modified the bracket

I happened to luck out a few years ago when I was going to lift it, I was at a wrecking yard looking for extra arms so I could extent and offset for the amount of lift that I wanted and I actually found some on a truck already modified. I believe you could use them unmodified but you'll need the extended brackets to mount them lower on the frame.
