83 chevy lift kit

I was wondering what will be the best size lift kit to put on 37inch tires. can you fit them with a straight 6inch lift

it might be tight with a 6 inch lift. depends on the tires actual diameter. I have a 79 chevy that I put an 8 inch superlift kit in and i'm running 38.5 x 16 super swampers. they only rub occationally. I dont know what the actual diameter if those are, but hopefully this is some useful information for you. also mine is a half ton stock heights varied betwen half 3/4 and 1 tons if I recall.
good luck!

I'm running 36's on my 85 K-30 with a 6 inch skyjacker lift, no rubbing whatsoever. However, my leafsprings are really stiff, virtually no flex at all.
