ok, thinking of lifting the 79 g10 after i swap a 350 in it. places o go are not ground clearance friendly to "street height " rigs. thinking 3-4 inches. who has done it and is it worth it. did the search and was info overload...

A G10 is a light van & not the best to lift ... are you going to do a little lift or going big ?

Probably would work if you frscke says add a leaf at the rear and switch for G30 / HD springs up front.

The G30 HD springs are for holding up a G30's body & a 454's or a diesel's weight, I would start with G20 HD seeing how your starting with a G10 & a 350. May get away with lighter duty but longer coils. Those G30 coils will give a very stiff ride to a light weight veh.
