Echobit flip and 4" TC ez-ride's???

    Echobit flip and 4\" TC ez-ride\'s???

    I just bought a bone stock '91 in excellent shape with 225/70/15 Michelin car tires on it. I am almost ashamed to drive it. Plus, the tires are brand new $100 Michelin car tires! What a waste. Maybe I can stuff them under the wife's Jetta.
    Anyhow, I have some cash to start the build-up. I want to run 33" and a small lift, like 2-3". Problem is I have alot of things I want to do with my limited funds. I need bushings all around, would like some HD shackles, new shocks, a lift, swaybar disconnect, ties and wheels, etc.
    How would an Echobit flip and 4" front springs sit? Wouldn't that extra 1 1/2" in the rear help level the vehicle at 4"? Anyone try this?

    Sounds like you picked up a nice ride!

    Blazers usually sit a little low in the back. It really depends on the condition of your rear springs. The average blazer with a full tank of gas, top on and loaded with trail gear sits right around level with the flip.

    I remember when mine was lifted 4" front / shackle flip back on 33's. It was a capable all around rig!
