Default Lift Kit recommendation

Hi guys. I have my 67-68 1200B pickup, that someday I want to make get a 3-5" lift put in. What would be some recommendations for a nice kit and where to purchase? Most of the kits I see are for Scouts or just not for international.

That's probably because no packaged kit exists for your truck. Just not enough of a market to justify the research, development, and manufacturing to bring a product like that to market at a halfway attractive price. I imagine other owners of those trucks who are savvy in the ways of careful measuring and fabrication have been able to make similar vintage GM kits work with some alteration, but I don't know that for certain.

We offer this front set of spring hangers to put a GM lift spring on the front of your truck. You'll want to buy the extra set of upper brackets as we specifically designed those to be used on a truck like yours.

CPT - Front GM Leaf Spring Hanger to IH Pickup, Travelette or Travelall

Rough Country 1973-87 Front GM Lift Leafsprings

We are still working on the shackle end of it but should have something soon.

For the rear suspension you can either add in a lift block, add-a-leaf, or combination of the two.
