I was wondering how much would I have to lift my truck to fit 18" rims on 33"tires.
Any 3" suspension lift, aka "SL", will suffice but it is still likely you may have to do a little trimming on the fender flares and/or bumper valance. Some people have been able to get away with fiting 33s with no lift and much more "trimming". Also take into consideration the wheel offset you go with because this can also cause rubbing issues.
You can pull off 33s on a bodylift and torsion bar crank. It depends what you want to do with your truck too though, I had a bodylift on my truck and I took it off now because I don't want it or need it anymore. If you're are doing the install yourself, a bodylift is definitely much more accessible but if you're paying someone for the install you are likely to spend as much for the bodylift as the cost of the suspension kit.I wouldnt just be a able to do a 3" body lift? Instead of a SL

SLR is not out of business howeverI wouldn't say you need to upgrade anything with the steering, especially if its just a street truck. An idler arm brace is a good idea though and they're relatively cheap. What will happen though is with bigger tires is the stock gear will wear out way faster especially if you off road at all.
As far as what you can do, Total Chaos makes a kit that is about as good as it gets but its pretty pricey. Calmini also makes a kit. As far as individual parts go, a new centerlink from grassroots4x4.com will make the biggest difference. There's also bronze idler arm bushings from bandit4x4.com. Calmini and AC both offer heavy duty tie rod adjusters. And every once in a while, if youre lucky, you might find some used parts from one of the many now non existent companies like SLR.
what? i thought SLR (spencer low racing) went out of business back in like 05 are they back or something?SLR is not out of business however
