lift that box!

I have 24's on my 89 caprice and i live in new york which has the worst streets in the world and im running 305 tires,no bends,no cracks in my rims and im only using those lift cups for my springs.. but you will need alot of ball joints on hand if you want to do it that way or you could check out universal car lifts :biggrin:

Not really....only half that height is "under the axle, so-to-speak...

The car doesn't "sit" on top of the whole 15 inches of wheel (not even regarding the tire itself).

And to the OP, of course your car will be raised up...how much you say?

Well, it depends on what suspension mods you have done or will do, etc., as well as the height of the tires you'll be using.
It's hard to throw a number with so many variables.
My suggestion would be to talk to a shop that has done this, or else someone with experience on the matter.

To throw for example, a 22" wheel on a vehicle does not mean said vehicle will now be 22 inches higher off the ground...:rolleyes::wink:
