Need lift kit for 1993 chevrolet G20 - February 26th 2019 2:15 pm

Hi Guys!

I have a 1993 Chevrolet G20 camper I'd like to raise 1" or 2" off the ground.

I can use a short style add-a-leaf kit to lift the back

https://www.carid.com/pro-comp/1-5-...f-kit-mpn-13122.html?singleid=171442205.

but I need a kit for the front. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the site .... yes that can be used on the rear, the ft a little more complicated & they dont make a kit.

Again welcome ...

HI Frscke1,

Thanks for your reply. I should mention I only want to raise the the body so I don't hit rocks sticking out while off-roading, so I think a suspension lift is the way to go. Air Lift has a direct fit front and rear air springs which are suitable for my 1993 Chevrolet G20 Van. The air springs come with the air lines, air fittings, brackets and mounting hardware, but the air compressor is sold separately from the air springs.

I don't know what the installation cost will be but the front air spring is $79.74. The rear air spring is $281.01 and the air compressor costs $203.36, so a total of $564.11.

Do you think this will do the job for me? Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

What size tire are you running or want to run ? You can fit 245/70 with out changing a thing.

Im not a big fan of air bags off road. Too many things to go wrong offroad. Just make sure your equip is tough, wrap the air lines in Kevlar, built a box for the compressor .... the week spot will be the bags them selves. Bushes & tree stumps are deadly offroad.

Build it right or built it twice ...

If you're right it will be great!!! I'll have to check.
My tires are 235/75.

When I lifted my Astro with the steel leaf spring I went to the wreckers picked up some Heavy pickup truck springs dropped my rear end and rebuilt the springs using my original support spring and added the heavier pickup springs and bolted the rear end back up...and in the front I bought cast lifting spacers that go between the lower end of the coil spring and control arm....I got a lift of about 3 inches and with stiffening up the rear end it was great for towing
