    i have prevouisly discussed swapping a late model rear coil suspension into my 94 fullsize Blazer , after talking to the people @ TuffCountry they suggested i talk to Air Ride Technologies , their suggestion was to convert the truck to a 4 link with air shocks , does anyone have any expierence with this set up ? this is basically a street driven truck

    sounds like TuffCountry was talking out their butts. Airride doesn't sell good travel airshocks, not even sure they sell ones that would support a fullsize. If you can fab a four link setup(its not a simple bolt up idea), you could use air bags for a soft ride, but thats another thing you need to research and learn about too.
