    Just wondered if anyone has bought a complete lift kit from ORD and how much it ran with shipping. Plus wether it was all 4 springs or just front and blocks.

    Last time I checked, Off Road Design stocks Tuff Country lifts. The price I paid for mine through ORD was consistent with Tuff Country's current advertised prices plus shipping. I'm having a little bit of a problem with their 4" "softride" front springs sagging though. I'm currently trying to find a remedy for the sag. I don't have any extra weight on the front so not sure why they are sagging. Tuff Country says they'll replace the springs but I'm wondering if I want to go through all the trouble of replacing my front springs every 1 1/2 years! I'm not sure if I would recommend the 4" softride springs. Anyone else have advice for 78Blazer?

    I plan on getting a 6 inch lift and would actually really like to get a 8 inch I dont know if they make and 8 inch lift (tuff Country).I tried to check out tuff countrys web page but it would not work. So what are there lifts going for now? I have a 4 inch lift now that is used that I am debating on putting on ebay or not right now. Once I can figure what its gonna cost me for a new one I may put it up.

    I got the T/C Lift from ORD, but I got the HD front springs
    and I have Wheel'd the crap out of them and have had no problems with "Sag". That was about 3 years ago...

    You'll have to look at a current magazine add to get prices. There are too many options and combinations available. I'm looking at the September 2001issue of Petersen's 4 Wheel &amp;Off-Road. Prices range from $239.95 for a 4" softride w/blocks w/o shocks to $767.95 for a complete 6" lift system with everything including rear springs!

    I bought my front springs from Stephen about two and a half years ago, 4 in. ez ride, no sagging problems, they ride good, and flex good. Everyone will have a different opinion. I bought about 3/4 of the ORD Catalog back then,HD front shackles, shackle flip, greaseable bushings etc. I'm very happy with all of it. Jon
