    1\" body lift

    I am not a huge fan of body lifts but a 1" does not sound too bad. I was told you offer one- if so, what does the package include? How much? The application is a 70 blazer.

    Don't drive it unless it says Chevy!

    The early K5 lift is about $85, I can't remember for sure, but it has a couple of pucks more than the 73-91, so that should be about right. It comes with the pucks and the bolts to put it in. There really isn't much else to do for it.
    Thanks

    Re: 1\" body lift

    I'm interested in the 1" body lift for my 79. I believe my body mounts are already shot since they are almost 22 years old. If I buy your 1" body lift kit, will I need to buy a separate kit of bushings? Or are they included? Your website says they start at $70. How much will they be for my 79?

    Sorry for all the ?s and thanks for taking your time in answering.

    Ok the K5 body lifts (73-91) are $70, and the bushing kits are not included. A body bushing kit is $100 for any of the blazers. Ours are Daystar poly mounts. Keep in mind that poly is stiffer than rubber and will transmit more vibration. That may or may not be objectionable. This is probably a good place for other K5 guys to jump in, did you notice a difference with the poly mounts? Maybe this will give you some good input.
    Thanks

    I just completed the body mounts and the ORD 1" body lift this weekend on my 70. The contruction of the body lift is excellent. The poly mounts are more solid and do let more vibration into the body but its not that noticable. I think it is a big improvment over the crushed and rotted 30 year old rubber mounts that were in it. Just my $0.02

    [​IMG] I have to agree with the Puddy Cat. [​IMG]

    Re: 1\" body lift

    I have Energy Suspension body bushings. My ride improved after putting them on because most of my rubber ones were almost entirely rotted away.
    I recommend Poly bushings, but if you only have, say, a 2" lift and do a lot of street driving, maybe some stock rubber ones would be better for you.

    I installed the Daystar poly mounts about a year ago and have loved them ! Yes you feel some more vibration, but the feel as you go around a corner is night and day too. The body roll is reduced due to the stiffer bushings.
