    Here is what I am planning and I just wonder if anyone else has done this yet? I currently have a Superlift 4" suspension lift with rear blocks and I also have a 3" Body lift (body lift has to go). I will continue to use the front 4" springs and add the Extended Shackles for a total lift between 5" and 5.5". For the rear I am ordering the 5.5" heavy Duty Superlift springs. I think this should set me about level front to rear. What do you think and has anyone else done this?

    I really don't have much input on the rear springs, if they are specifically for an early k5 and have 5.5" of lift, you should in theory be fine........
    It is easier to raise them than to lower them though, so if it doesn't work, it's easy to fix.

    Given the same lift spring front and rear on a 72 the rear will be about 1.5 to 2 inches lower with the Hard top fitted. With the Hrad top off mine was still low in the back by about an inch.

    I understand the jeep thing I drive a BLAZER!!
