After replacing the driveshaft with a junkyard special and spraying some black primer where one of the camoflauge colors had oxidized away, we decided it was time to give this old veteran some new shoes. Our goal was fitting 37-inch tires, and to do that we needed some more suspension height. Almost every suspension company makes a lift kit for the early box Chevys, but we were picky. The kit had to have all new leaf springs and no lift blocks, and we didn't want more than a 4-inch lift to clear our new rubber. The answer came from Skyjacker's Softride Suspension. A trip to the Burbank 4-Wheel Parts Performance Center allowed Albert Cuevas to install the kit on our CUCV in about a day and a half.
