    6\" Front springs... WHAT ARE YOU USING ;-)

    I have now flipped the 14bolt and need to add some more inches to the front to level it out. What 6" springs are you guys using? Is there any out there that won't just beat you to death. It isn't a daily driver and it doesn't see much rocks, but it gets sandy and muddy often. Thanks guys and gals. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif <font color="blue"> </font color>

    <font color="green"> Superlift Superrides, but if I did it over again I would use the Tuff Countrys. Softest rate and the most free arch, from what I understand. </font color>

    BDS. I recently had a problem with a 6" rear spring. I called BDS and told them about the problem, and they said "no problem." I asked if you replace the bad one, will the old one and the new one ever settle the same? They said no, we will ship you two new springs, three days later I had two new rear springs.

    You can't beat that!!! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Re: 6\" Front springs... WHAT ARE YOU USING ;-)

    I can get skyjacker, rancho, procomp, and superlift for cost (around 200.00 a set shipped to me). I know I can't get the BDS and I am not sure on the Tuff Country. Does any of the people that I can get at cost make anything that is a-ok? I try and get things for the blazer that I sell; that way I am advertising brands I carry. It is hard to tell someone ya I would put an "xyz" kit on thier vehicle when I run something totally different. I guess I could always just lie and say the Tuff Country is a skyjacker or something since I paint everything camo ;-)

    I have ridden in trucks with most all brands of springs (even nationals, but not alcan or deaver) and I would have to say that my TC ez-rides are the best without going with custom springs. I paid $200 for mine.
