most commonly thing done is to drop the upper trailing arm mounts either to the frame near where the lowers are mounted or drop the upper trailing arm mounts below the factory locations about 5 inches...will possibly still need to do some driveline work such as a slip yoke or cutting some material off...

custom 4 link. learn how to do one to do what you want. push the game, force others to do legit work! dont settle cuz you will want more later, and adding taller cylinder isnt always the answer. I set my rear up for 20" cylinder, then decided I wanted to do 28's,sit a lil lower and lift a lil higher.. but it swings the rear end way to far forward,those few extra inches

caddies are tough tho, you will hit the back bumper goin up, and the front bumper going down!
