    I am thinking of either three linking or 4 linking my blazer with coil over shocks, will this set up make it ride softer or harder, i really dont off road that much it is just a daily drive, i want to run 39s or 40s on it with 3/4 ton axles, i am just looking for a little softer ride. will this set up be softer or is there another solution? please tell me all there is to know. I am also thinking of doing this to my 93 chevy silverado(ditching the IFS)

    Your ride quality depends mostly on the rate of the coils you use, also the geometry. I really wouldn't go with the 3 or 4 link for a primarily highway rig - I'd go with a soft-ride leaf kit, like Superlift's SuperRide or Skyjacker's Softride. For your Silverado, look into a race-bred kit like FabTech, the difference in ride/handling is unbelievable.

    Dos mas Tecates!!!
