    A buddy of mine wanted to get a little lift for his 1990 Surburban. He was initially talking 6 inches and 35's but this rig won't ever see dirt and tows a boat. He liked the look of a Ford SD that a buddy went wild on. I've talked him out of going radical but he does want to go to 33's. I'm recommending 2 inch springs since he runs 32's now with stock suspension no problem. I have TC EZ-Rides on my Blazer and like them. That would be my recommendation but I notice they list up through only 1987 on the Tuff Country site. Anybody do anything similar? Opinions?

    Anybody else? Maybe I should've gone in the garage with this one.

    The springs for the '87 will fit a solid axle rig up through '91. :cool:

    88- changed

    thay changed the bussings on 88-91 solid axles in the front springs, i think it was for biger bolts. i would use a 4" lift on the front and a 6 " in the rear to level it all out. did this on a k5 blazer and set just perfect no rear sagging. if he wants a smoother ride do a ord flip kit and a 1-2"block in rear to level out.

    Hmm, I didn't run into that when I put an older set of front springs under my '90 Sub. :confused:
