    The front springs on my 90 K-5 are arched downward. The same was true on my old 87. Can these springs be flipped to lift the front end?

    Don't think so. The spring eyes are not designed for that stress. I think there might be a fitment problem on both ends....
     
  3. Actually the weight of your Blazer puts most of the arch in them, so you won't get a different ride and the springs weren't designed to be as strong if they were flipped over. I wouldn't reccomend trying it.
