    Actual Lift out of 4\" HD Tuff Country\'s

    I'm thinking of lifting my truck when I do my axle swap. My present plan is 4" springs up front with the Echobit shackle flip in the rear. I've got saggy springs in the back so should I plan on getting zero-rates to keep the back up? I can't stand the saggy butt look on my blazer and judging from other post the springs give you a little more than the advertised rate.
    BTW: This will be going on a stock front end (i.e. no winch, bumper, or anything for now)

    Thanks,
    James

    The 4" EZ rides should give you 12.5 to 13" from the axle tube to the bumpstop mount bracket, the HD's should give you 3/4" or so more lift if you don't weigh them down. Past that about all you can do is put it together and see what happens.
