LOOKIN FOR A LIFT!!!

okay guys im lookin for a lift! unfortunately i dont have a sig yet so i'll lay out my info...

early 99 PSD 7.3 6 SPD Handshaker SuperCab Short Bed 4x4 Off Road

the problem im running into are there are so few lifts for this particular truck (early 99) that im not sure what will work.... whether or not i can get a late 99 lift if it will bolt on or what mods im gonna have to do. Im lookin for either a 4in or 6in 4link coil over suspension. similar to the full-traction lift. however as far as i can tell its only made for late 99. any input is greatly appreciated

Re: LOOKIN FOR A LIFT!!!

Good luck finding what you are looking for I have never seen either but if you find a 4 inch coilover lift let me know.

Re: LOOKIN FOR A LIFT!!!

this one will work on your truck dieselman... Full-Traction.... the only problem with that i dunno if it will work on my EARLY 99.

that one does come in 4, 6, or 8 inch lifts

Re: LOOKIN FOR A LIFT!!!

i believe that fabtech makes a conversion like your talking about. other wise theres some used leaf kits on here for sale for cheap but the shipping might kill you. as i found out. cost me $450 to ship mine from NC to OR. the diffrence in the early 99 and late 99 is minamal. the trackbar is about it. im going to be running a late 99 lift on my early 99 truck and the only thing i need to do is change the track bar to a late 99 trackbar and then drill out the axle side for a larger bolt. if i have to i will weld new plates to the axle side to add some more strength

early 99, xcab, 8"lift,37" toyo open country m/ts, afe stage II,BDP tuning, 5" black chrome aussie cuts, blacked out bumper and grill, 8 isspro performax guages, stealth dual pumps, a few fuel leaks......

mods to come:

yea they just came out recently which got me lookin again. i figure by now someone would have a decent kit out for the early 99 but so far all i can really find are leaf suspension kits, and spacers if i knew then what i know now i may have just held out for a 2000 7.3 lol... dont tell my truck... she might spit diesel on me or... something....

Re: LOOKIN FOR A LIFT!!!

I don't see why you couldn't use one of those Full-Traction lifts have you called them to check out what they have to say about it.

Re: LOOKIN FOR A LIFT!!!

No i just found it this morning while i was here at work.... and i dont get off till around nine am tomorrow sooo I'm gonna have to wait till then. I've been lookin all evening and just cant find anything else. The thing with this lift is you have to buy the coils and shocks seperate which isnt too big a deal they design the lifts to accommadate a variety of different setups. One thing at a time... lol one thing at a time.
