It’s acutally a 84 pup( hope that is ok!). I was referred over here for info…
Looking to lift the truck about 4”…I have the rear understood, but what about the front? Do they make lift spindles for luv’s? And new torsion bars?
Is there a fender flare that fits closely? Not looking for those tub style flares…more off-road truck style( not bushwacker, about 2” extra coverage
Thanks for any help.

I'm out of my wheelhouse here, but I'll tell you what I've read here and on the P'up site.

There is very little parts support these days, and almost nothing on the aftermarket that is specific for these trucks.

For the front, you can get a bit of lift by re-indexing the torsion bars. But not a lot. To go higher, you may need to do a solid axle conversion.

For the rear, there are shackles. An extreme driveshaft angle will accelerate u-joint wear.

I can have custom rear springs made for the rear, but the front is what I’m not sure about. Wondering if a shop can modify the spindles?
