body lift on a w350 DRW

i took off my running boards last night and noticed that i could throw shims on the body mounts to lift the body up a little. has anyone ever done this? and how hard is it and how much lift can i shim it for?

you could do a body lift. However, you have to worry about steering and shift linkage, body to chassis wiring and everything else if you go more than about an inch. It can be done on the cheap with hockey pucks and longer bolts, or with some stacked washers and longer bolts, but for what? an inch of tire clearance? your better off leaving it alone or going with a suspension lift for that much trouble.
