    I have an 87 K5 and want to put on a 6 inch suspension lift sometime soon. It will be my daily driver. Do any relatively inexpensive, but flexy lifts come to mind? What would you recommend rear blocks or springs? Also, what other modifications would I have to do to my Blazer with a 6 inch lift? Brake lines...driveshaft lengthening...t-case lowering??? Bascially, I want a good, inexpensive lift, that wont require too many other modifications to my truck to install. Thanks alot. Harrison

    I'm running 6" Superlift "softrides" springs up front, with 4" blocks and 2" add-a-leafs in the rear. It rides good, and was under $500.00 including the extened break lines, raised steering arm, and shocks. It's a good way to go till you can save up for a better system for the rear like Springer Suspension
