i bought my truck with a trailmaster lift kit on it. its a 89 GMC Sierra SLE, running BFG 35s. they dont rub when i turn, only when i'm pushing it hard off road. i'm wondering if there is any way to messure something to find out how much lift there actually is.

First you have to find a stock truck just like yours. You have to measure from the center of the wheel to the fender on all four corners and compare. Or you could look at the blocks on the rear suspension, but some lifts don't use blocks. Those are my suggestions.

BTW, welcome to the forums!

Does your truck have stock springs or aftermarket springs? If they are stock do you have the window sticker, and are they standard or heavy duty springs. I have the heavy duty stock spings on my Silverado and it sits a couple inches higher than one with out. If you have standard stock springs a set of HDs will probably help. If you already have HDs or aftermarket springs, you might try an inch or two body lift finish off the package.
