    Differant lift for 88-91 K5\'s

    Looking at the Tuff Country catolog it shows a differant lift for the 88 to 91 K5's. What's the differance from 73 to 87? My lift is off a 78 and need to know if I have to change anything before I install it in my 89.

    The front spring's front spring eye is bigger from 88-91...I think tyhe earlier ones are 1/2 thick, later ones 9/16...

    So where can I get the parts to change my spring bushings to the correct size? I figure ORD should have them.

    88-91 Blazers and Jimmys were still solid front axle. The trucks were IFS.
