    Caddy on 30's??

    So I have a '98 Deville and I'm looking to blow a couple stacks or more on it. Just wondering how many inches of a body lift will i have to get installed if I wanna put 30's on there? I know it's ridiculous but I really don't care. I'm looking to cut very minimal metal if any. Any answers will help.

    Very few members here are into mods, and AFAIK, nobody here has anything even close to 30's. You probably won't find an answer here.

    Damn, I got a quote from a car shop to lift my car and install my rims. They said it would 2,500 buck probably and that just doesn't sound right to me.

    I'd suggest you save your money. You WILL outgrow this phase, I promise! Unless you like being laughed at. I have never seen anyone (even teenagers) not laugh at one of those ridiculous looking jacked up sedans.

    It's easy... buy a truck with mudders on it and put cadillac emblems on it.

    Part of that cost is probably to deal with the shame of being involved with such a monstrous undertaking.

    do you guys REALLY think this is silly?

    sure - it MIGHT ride a little rough -

    and YES - you can't get in - or out - without a ladder -

    but come-on -

    The only jacking up I would support is if you turned it into a full on monster truck.

    It's nice to have someone start a comedy thread once in a while - simply giving maintenance and repair advice gets old after a while. We all need a good belly laugh now and then. heck - A Deville on 30's would be just wonderful as a corn row plow here on the Shore.

    26"s are ur limit... Unless u want a clown car

    U will have to start cutn at 24"s

    $2500 is way to much

    Dnt throw money at it

    Research and Invest in the RIGHT mods for the right price

    DON'T Flock with the Radio System unless u get a CERTIFIED Deville aftermarket Installer...

    YouTube , Google and Cadillac Forum

    Good luck

    stereo install wasn't easy but i ran wires from my aftermarket hard unit to behind rear drivers side seat
    to where factory amp was and connected to stock speaker inputs.
    tore out all onstar and factory amp and cell phone.
    still looking for switched power wire so radio will shut off when door opens after car is turned off
