The bleeder screw test is not an accurate flow test..

The proper flow :

The 1994+ Model Year lift pump should deliver fuel with a minimum volume of at least 0.24 liter (1/2 pint) in 15 seconds and pressure of 3 psi minimum with the engine cranking, the ESO disconnected, and the fuel line open after the filter to an approved canister

The easiest way to test the lift pump is to have the engine running, open the T Valve for a minimum of 30 seconds and let fuel flow from the drain line into a container.

If during that timeframe the engine dies or there is no fuel flowing from the line, the lift pump is too weak to support the engine.

I did figure that bleeder thing might not be an accurate way to test it, so thanks for confirming that.
I was gonna test it with the T valve today, but then it seems like the problem has been solved, so I don't really wanna push my luck and test it now. As soon as it occurs again I will test it with the T-valve. Thanks again!

I have never tested the lift pump on My truck, might just do that to be sure it is up to the task. seems simple enough but what is the ESO that needs to be disconnected for the cranking test ?

That should be the Fuel Shutoff Solenoid on top of the IP

So far so good! Driven quite a bit today and the problem hasn't come back!

The way things are looking now I will most likely order the lift kit late December.
I will most likely go for this one:
https://liftkits4less.com/5-7-superl...500-8-lug-4x4#

One thing I'm worried about though is Axle Wrap, and if I should be worried about it with this lift kit...
I would like to hear some thoughts about this. If I need to order traction bars it will be cheaper to let it all ship in one go.

Debating between the SuperLift and the TuffCountry:

The TuffCountry has added leafs where the SuperLift only comes with blocks..

Hello!

You know I prefer non-lifted trucks but here's my .02!

Just looking at the pictures alone..I'd spend the extra and get the TuffCountry...seriously look at the difference in the cradle alone!

for 300 +- well worth it IMO.

Help me out with the word 'cradle' please, no idea what it means

I see your point though!
I'd prefer a knuckle lift kit to a bracket one, but I don't think they made any knuckle kits for the K-series Chevrolet.
Also the extra leafs instead of just blocks appeal to me.
Only thing is it says new rims are required with a backspacing of 4.5" or less.
Hopefully my stock rims will fit for a few months at least because I won't have the money to get new rims and tires right away

Just found out that if I ship/import the kit the legal way, I have to pay an additional 600 euro's in taxes and other bull**** in my stupid country. No way I'm ever gonna pay that.

No idea what to do next.. Sending the goods as a 'gift' doesn't work anymore, since you still get charged from gifts from outside Europe (welcome to *****ing Holland...)

Maybe gonna have to ship it to a different country in Europe and pick it up over there..

Are there any companies that carry lift kits over there?
Maybe the local auto parts store can give a suggestion??
