    52\" spings up front ?

    i tried to search but didnt come up with much about it. I have a 12 in spring up front now and was wondering if i go to rear 52" springs up front would i still need 12" springs or 8. i hear a stock set of spring give you about 4" inches of lift. I am trying to keep the truck the same height it is now but more flex. thanks

    I put a BDS 52" 4" lift spring in the front of my Big block blazer and ended up with just over 7"lift.

    I would think an 8" rear spring would be a good place to start. If its close you could pull a short leaf out of the pack. If its to low you could get a zero rate. Or you could just have national make you what you want!
