Hi! I have a 1977 G30 Beauville and I want to lift it 2" to 4" just because of looks. I have read anything from taller springs and C1500 lift spindles but springs will not give me even 2" and C1500 spindles does not allow me to use 8 lug wheels.

Is there any lift spindles that allow me to use 8 lug wheels? I do not mind modifying the spindles if that is what's needed. Rear end seems to be quite easy.

Beautiful van how she sits now.

C30 should be 8 lug. I'm not 100% sure if they will work, but that's the Chevy 1 ton truck. Chevy series naming are usually really similar across the line of trucks and vans the 10 and 15/1500 series would be 1/2 ton. The 20, 25/2500 would be 3/4 ton. And the 30, 35/3500 would be 1 ton.

That looks almost exactly what I'm after. Thanks! Looks to be with 6 lug brakes but I may have to live with that.
