I was wondering if anyone has put a body lift on their suburbans or tahoes because i am goin to put a 3" on my suburban and i was wondering if it was any different than putting one on a pickup.

if your clearing the 33's stock now i bet they would fit. i would do some minor triming though for off roading reasons. if your asking if it ill be hard to do then i dont think it would be to much harder than a truck

What size body lift can you do without having to do major changes to linkages etc. I am thinking about adding another inch or two with a body lift, but don't want to have a whole bunch of problems with the linkages (clutch, shifter, t-case). I realize I would need new hoses, brake lines, etc, but I need them already.

from what i can tell you obviously have a diesel and im pretty sure nobody makes a kit for diesels, but if you do find one, the changes i have to do is put an extension in the steering shaft and a few other minor things that come in the kit.

We didnt move the bars up, they stayed down with the chassis. If we wanted to move them up we would have had to do some custom work, but since this is my MOMS truck i guess its better that i leave em down. That color is midnight blue. I think thats the best color chevy ever had on those trucks. Yeah the chick in the truck is definately in the hottie category. And shes my hottie so im happy :D:
