    Just curious if anyone out there has used Genuine suspension before? Are they good lift kits or are they cheap. Does anyone know what the spring rate is of there springs? Thanks.

    I bought the Genuibne suspension 6" lift - it is 6" ProComp springs, rear blocks, and cheapo es1000 shocks.
    Only part of that kit I still have is the front springs. I don't like them - they are too rough.
    I would not buy the same kit or same springs again.

    i just put their 2 1/2 in. lift on this weekend with front and rear springs and pro comp es3000 shocks. my 88 blazer rides 100 times better than it did stock. the springs are pro comp's also. maybe it's just the taller springs that ride rough. i've seen a lot of complaints on here about them. i wouldn't have bought them, but i run on a very tight budget.
