    Ok I have been doing some tinkering on the truck. One year ago the truck did a 750 with bar off on a 20 deg ramp. That was brand new front springs and the original 75 rear springs.
    Got to ramp it again this weekend on a 25 deg ramp and she pulled a 752!!!!! The biggest mod I have made in that year is to swap out the rear springs for stocks off a 86. Also getting the fronts broke in helped.
    Does anybody know how to figure out what it would have ramped on a 20deg? it went up the 25 deg ramp 80 inches.
    I will hopefully have the pics developed this week and I'll post them.

    I used MicroStation (cad software) to figure the conversion out. Multiply your score by 1.236666 which would mean 930 on a 20 degree. Thats great for a Blazer!
