    Beefin\' up my suspension I have some questions?

    I bought an 1984 K-5 bazer about 8 months ago I haven't done much to it yet but I recently bought an 85 Jimmy blazer type it has the heavy duty front leaf springs and single shocks my blazer has the light duty leaf springs and dual shocks.
    I am thinking about using the leaf springs from the Jimmy
    but I am not sure if I would benefit much from the trade?
    I would also like to trade the automatic for a 4 speed if anyone has parts they want to sell or trade? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Yeah prolly won't get any benefits from swapping springs. If ya wanna get soem new springs get some lifted ones /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Ditch the dual shocks unless you are running high speed stuff it will ride much nicer. Welcome to CK5 and good score on the Blazer and the Jimmy /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
