    OK, I have a 1976 Blazer Chalet that I've taken the back out of, and the back sits about 2" higher (maybe more) than the front. My question is if I do a shackel flip on the rear (which is a 52" spring with 3/4 ton pack on a 14 bolt axle), Will putting a 52" pack out of a half ton on the front still be too short? I know the front springs are de-arched right now, and the bump stops are resting on the pack. I want to get about 3-4" lift all around but stitting level. There are some pics of my at my friends site here http://www.havocoffroad.com/ftopicp-473.html#473
