    i am interested in using coils from an f150 or 250 on my Blazer (85' with d60 14blt and 4 inch ezride with shackle flip and revolvers). can this be easily done? will crossove steering still work? I want something more trick and i plan to not use radius arms. Instead i will have a 3 or 4link.

    My opinion is, if ya want something tricker...ya gotta have coilovers.....otherwise you're better off with what you have already.

    Coming from a little bit of experience it was easier to build mounts for the coilovers. Cost wise it would be cheaper with coil springs. Designing the three link is a little tricky trying to keep the driveshaft angle happy as well as caster.
