Yes, 11.5's will fit, you may have some rubbing on the leaf springs at full turn, but that is easily fixed. I see you have a 3" lift so those tires will fit nice,

thanks guys. would 33's put substantially more stress on the axles than 32's, or is it a negligible amount?

33's put a substantially amount more stress than stock tires. The front axle can handle it. The rear axle can arguably handle it. The engine will struggle to cope with change.

Nick is right , if you have an 89 you will have a non c clip d35 which has Flange mount shafts like a D44 and it is a little but stronger but either way for 33's you will need to regear 4:10's and 33's are about perfect for a 4.2l But for a 2.5l you'll. want 4.88
