    4\" suspension lift questions...

    I'm going to go 4" on my blazer. I want it to flex good, but I'm also going to tow with it. Any suggestions as to which brand?

    I love my new Rough Country 4 inch lift.. Front/Rear springs.. and all the hardware... truck sits high and level.
    Rides really nice too.. I'm dumping the Heckthorn shocks that came w/ the kit.. too mushy.... I'm going w/ the rancho 5000's.

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.rocko.coloradok5.com>http://www.rocko.coloradok5.com</A>

    I like the Skyjacker all spring lift I put on mine....I towed my 19ft Ski boat to Austin and Hot Springs several times before I sold it last summer....also would look into a BDS lift for a flexy lift...I think that using all Poly bushings for the springs and sway bar made all the difference in handling (I just unbolt the sway bar and tiewrap it out of the way for more flex)...I'd use some moderate shocks like Rancho 5000's or some other Gas types (most all shocks are built by Maramont).....Sure am glad you're enjoying your new toy...looking forward to watching the progress and maybe getting to wheel with ya some time (if I ever get away from work)....JD

    I'm at 10th and Plum....10 miles from nowhere, and Plum out in the sticks....Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..
