Default Opinions for lifting a 95'

I have recently purchaced a 95' tahoe, ls, 2dr. I want to lift it 4" - 6", have not decided yet. I have seen kits that include a new extended knuckle and kits that do not replace the knuckle. I was wandering if anyone has experiece with either type of kit? Do both kits lower the diff. housing? How does the different kits affect the cv shafts and vibrations? I know in the rear if I stick to block, ride will stay the same but axle wrap will increase. Replacement springs will minimize, but not stop, axel wrap and possibly stiffen the ride.

just looking for experience and opinions.

I agree

Are you looking to do a pure suspension lift or a body lift or combination of each? Are you looking for a basic bolt on type kit or are you looking to spend some cash and do a custom lift kit probably through a shop? Do you plan on regearing it? Is it a 4x4?

I prefer only suspension with no body but I'll be willing to do 2" of BL. This will not be for serious offroad (I have my 89 4runner for that) so I just wanna run 35s. Mall crawler status. Is the ifs stout enough to handle DD it with 35"s? Prob a bolt on kit.

I've also searched with little success but do the rear windows on a 1995 Chevrolet 4door Tahoe only go 1/3 of the way down!?

It should be the same as my 97, yeah about 2/3rds the way down. The wheel well arch in the door is the limiting factor.

That is correct. Due to the rear wheel wells there is no way to make the back windows to go all the way down... What a design fault hu? Its like I could understand child safety so make them go down like half way but my daughter gets Really hot in her seat in the back of the truck... Even with the windows down it doesnt get much for air on her..

yes on the window, I have an early 99 with 4 inch superlift, only welding that had to be done was for the links from the dif support back to the trans crossmember... no joint vibration but there is alot of axle wrap even with the new springs... if your planning to run 35's you will have to go higher than I am because I am running 33 mickeys with a 14 inch rim and if I turn tight and hit a hole they rub the step side and fender...
