Yes
Answer #2 | 16/12 2013 16:23
Probably. Also, depending on how you do it, longer/custom brake lines, electrical, etc.

I wouldn't lift it. Lifting a vehicle requires more power and torque with the longer distance from the transmission to the rear axle plus larger tires. I think your Jimmy would have a hard time handling it. Especially if it's an 89, there must be at least 200,000 miles on that (probably more). You're just gonna create more problems than it's worth.

More than likely it will have to be modified due to the fact your going up to 8 inches. But there will be other things as well you will have to modify like extended the brake lines, steering components. Tilt the rear axle to compensate for the added height also. sometimes, shifter linkage & a few other things will have to be modified
