    I haven't seen a posting on this suspension. Is it any good? Its about $330 out the door from 4wheelparts (I don't need any neg feedback about 4wheelparts, they have done me just fine) Its a 4" lift and comes with shocks.

    All I have really heard is that they are real stiff. No first hand experience though.
    May be one of those, you get what you pay for things.

    The GFenuine supsensions is just a package that 4WPW puts together. It is actually Pro Comp front springs with rear blocks. The shocks that they give you are they ProComp 1000's which basically SUCK. If you upgrade to at least a 3000 series Procomp you will be fine. I currently run this lift and everyone that rides in my Blazer says it's the smoothest one they have ever riden in. I've even heard it's "CADDY-LIKE"[​IMG] I don't know about caddy-like but it is smooth. Just make sure you don't tighten your spring bolts( the ones that hold your springs on the frame and shackle) too much. That will definately cause a harsh ride from ANY spring.
