    Will 3/4 ton springs from a suburban bolt on to my 90 K5 in place of the stock springs ?, and will they add any lift ?, the stock springs on my blazer are sagging a little and im looking for a spring that will bolt on in place of the stock springs, if the 3/4 ton springs won`t work, then I will just buy new springs.

    This is from ORD's site in refernce to rear lift springs:



    I would think they would make a much stiffer ride. I would also suspect there would be some "lift" resulting from the springs. I suppose you could maybe pull a leaf or two out.


    If it were me, I would order some Tuff Country springs from ORD. Or you could get a 1" zero rate if your just looking to level the truck.

    they will bolt up if they are the same length, you can get either 52" or 56" in the 3/4 ton burbs/trucks. they will not give you any lift maybe 1/4-1/2" if anything because they may have an extra leaf or 2.

    you have the 52" springs in there now
