    Hill\'s 4wheel shackles

    I'm thinking bout gettin them. Question is. It's a stock blazer, and I still run my Hard top... So how much higher do you think the front end will be than the rear? Any easy fixes to level it out (besides a soft top [​IMG]).

    The shackle is 2" longer right?This would give about an 1" lift.But you will need to shim the pinion back up to the original angle,your else you will get binding in the joints.Stock chevy's can handle up to a 1" longer shackle then you need to check angles.As far as matching the rear you could put a block in.Or depending on how much you need to lift the rear ot match the front you could take an old over load spring and cut down so it is like 4" long.Take apart the rear leave pack and put this in the bottom and pin it back together.This will give you about a 1/2" lift.But again check the angles.You may need to shimm the rear too.Brady
