Who's Got the 8.8 Installed Already?

Just wondering if this installation would lower your lift in the rear on a spring under axle configuration due to the larger diameter axle tube.

95, 4" susp. lift, 33x12.50 ProComp M/T's, custom square tube bumpers, , energy bushings, 4.0 HO, everything stock, 1" or 2" body lift and who knows what else coming soon.

hummm I didn't notice a difrence on mine when i did the convertion on my axles. If it dose change it would only be by a 1/4 inch. it all depends on how tall the spring pearches are on the axle. If the spring pearches are taller then it could effect that but I don't really think that it change the amount of lift at all
