Sounds like what my 94 has. a 3" body and 35's. and thanks on the gun ive wanted it for a bit of time now.
also have some bad news on the Tahoe.Its frames out by about 1-1/2" so it's getting parted out.so time to tear apart a perfectly good truck that just needs a rear end
97 Chevy z71 Vortec 350, true duals with flows, hypertech, k&n filter, trick flow t.b. spacer. hopefully by spring ill have a 6 lug sas with a 77 ford 44 and factory 10 bolt may try and find a sf 14 for it but that can always be changed later.
Already have the front axle a set of 6 lug outers, ord shackle flip and 6.5" super shackle are on there way. going to also put in a 4" block and ord 0 rate add a leaf to net 10" of lift rear. Front is yet to come but going to be ord sas kit, 8" 73-87 front spring. Along with the ord cross over steering set up an a ried racing/ dedinbear flat top knuckle. After that all that will be left will be to figure out shock length and mounting, and figure out length for a set of 81-87 ext brake lines. since I will be using calipers from that year truck should be a blot on and go there. Hopeing to be out of this for under 3000 including truck purchase price. Minus wheels tires and gears i feel it should be very do-able.
