what can i use to do this lil procedure. I wana tackle this soon cause im expectin some wonderfully cheap parts for ebay to be in and with my belltech spindles up front i wana avoid all costs of gettin wheel bite. I also want to try to refurbish my fender lips as best as possible, there in might bad shape and there is still a few screws from the trim rusted in there i need to knock out. Any adivce on how to properly do this and make it look good. thanx

If you have an 88-98 you can do the front just like the rear (see below) if you have a NBS, you don't have to worry about your wheel hitting the fender lip because there's no way for that to be possible with the factory fenders.

Here is what I did to my rear: I rolled mine with a piece of 2" steel tubing that I notched a small place in near the top. I stuck the lip in the notch and pushed the tubing up (be sure to cut the lips in a few places 1st)

The only thing I can think of doing right now with those screws are to grind the heads of them off (if the heads are stripped) if not get some WD-40 and spray on both sides and let set for a few minutes and then patiently and carefully unscrew them.

My friend has a set of DJM spindles and some 20" wheels with 5.5" backspacing on his 92 with a 5/6 drop and I had to roll up his front fender lips because they were REAL close to coming in contact with them.

right now im just runnin 15'' stockers wrapped in 225/60/15 rubber. I got some 2 inch dropped coils off ebay, and i also plan in pickin up a flip kit, and adding everything to my current 2/4 drop, i just dont feel like swappin out my spindles cause of cash flo, and i hope rollin the fenders will prevent anything major. U know if im gonna have to remove or do any cuttin with the front wheel wells, there damn shallow and seem like they wont allow alot of travel into them.

I've seen a 6.5" drop up front on a 94 GMC and he didn't have to do any mods to the inner fenders. I wouldn't think you would have to. Just to make sure I'd lower the truck and put the stockers back on and see how much clearance you have with the lips before you roll them.
