important note about the CST 5"lifts: This lift kit was designed for an extended cab truck, which has a two piece driveshaft with a carier bearing mounted to the gas tank crossmember in the middle to support it. included in the kit is a means to drop this carier bearing, some cutting and welding is required to do this. On the Reg cab truck we have a one piece driveshaft. when the new rear leaf-springs are installed the driveshaft rubs/sits on this crossmember. the kit will work with regular cab trucks, but you have to cut/notch/strengthen the crossmember to make room for the driveshaft, and allow clearance. I used parts from the old transmission x member to fabricate a u shape into the rear x member . overall i am happy with the CST kit but fitment was a little more complicated than i had expected. Good luck!

anybody ever see the Camburg Front suspension for the 2wd Colorados/Canyons? it looks awesome. im thinking about using it with my CST lift knuckles... think i will be able to align it? it shouldnt be a problem because the CST kit basicly dosent affect alignment right? the new upper control arms provided with the Camburg kit will fix any alignment issues right? just e mailed Camburg... will let u know if i hear anything.

What wheel diameter, width, offset/backspacing are you running?
My tires are 285 75 16 (33 x 11.50) BFG ATs

My wheels are 16" in diameter with an 8" width and a "0" offset or 4" backspace. I'll say that anything more than a 4" bs with an 11.50 tire on a 4" 4x4 suspension lift and you might be rubbin. I've got about 1/4" +/- between the inside of the tire and the upper bj.

You could always just throw on a 3" body lift and then be able to clear 31s I think... It looks like you have a Z85 (not the offroad suspension package).

You can also do the 2" lift with different shackles and cranking on the torsion bars.

Or you could go the biggest possible :shrug:

First thing you need to do is figure out a portion of it, ie what size tires you want to run or how high you want to be lifted. Once you figure one of those out, the other answers will fall in line...
