2 tech ?\'s on lift kit, 35 BFG and T-case lowering Hello, I have decided to run 35 BFG's on my 73 Blazer. Will not see severe off road use but needs to be solid. Plan on using the Hill 4" shackle for the rear and buying front springs separately. Desire a soft ride as speeds off road will not be high, mostly picking between trees and up hills. The rear springs will be tailored to match the front. Question 1. What would be a good source for 4" leaf springs that are of a softer variety? I realize that 4" may not be quite enough (or is it). If 4" springs are not tall enough I will do a shackle extension to make them clear. Trimming fenders is not an option as the truck is a 73 with less than 10,000 original miles and is in premo shape. Question 2. Do I really need to lower the T-case to run a 4" lift? What if I shim the pinion angles, will it be ok running down the highway at 80? Question 2.5. What is involved in lowering the T-case? I assume I must lower the engine as well. This would seem to bring about other problems such as fan shroud, header alignment etc. This truck is a 4 speed manual so I see possible linkage trouble as well. Question 3. ( ok so I lied I have more than 2 questions ) If I plan on running BFG 12.5 35's should I just go to the 6" lift. I assume at this point I would have to lower the T-case. If I must lower it for a 4" I may as well go 6"? Truck has a 205 T-case and 12 bolt rear, dana 44 up front. 4 speed manual. I don't mind replacing U joints frequently as it is not a daily driver. My main concern is a soft ride off road and ability to get to town at 80mph ( I live in a dry county), great fun to drive topless in the summer so I use to go to work on occasion. Gotta be able to run down the Expeditions on the highway. I plan on some sort of locker or mini spool rear and a limited slip up front using 4.11's. Target RPM should be about 3,000 at highway speed. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Question 4. Why does my wife squeal like a prom queen when I spend money on my truck but never bats and eye when I drop a 502 in the boat? Tim T.
