    Difference between lifts ?\'s

    Is there any difference between a suburban, truck and blazer lift? On 4wheelparts. com they all have the same part number but the blazer lift is 535.95 while the sub lift is only 482.95. i just wanted to know if there is any difference before i order the cheapest one.

    Re: Difference between lifts ?\'s

    A little warning light went off in my head when I read your post in regards to buying the cheapest lift. In suspension lifts, you get what you pay for. Maybe you're not too picky about ride quality, but consider yourself warned.
    Now, on to the question: there isn't any difference in the kits. The kits for a suburban/blazer ('73-91) and pickup ('73-87) are interchangeable. Well, except for one minor detail - you'll find a lot of suburbans (even 1/2 tons) have 56" long rear springs as opposed to a blazer's 52". But, that difference wouldn't come into play unless you are buying a system with new rear springs. Even at that though, that doesn't explain why the price for the suburban kit is less.

    I'd be a little nervous about the quality of the cheapest lift. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Let me suggest something. Call ORD and ask them to put together a lift kit for you at whatever lift you're wanting. Use the shaclke flip in the rear.

    I went and ordered the one for the blazer. I wasnt ordering the cheapest lift just the cheapest one of the same thing if that makes any sense at all.
