    I just put new springs in the rear of my blazer( got rid of the blocks) They had to be the 56" 6" lift springs and I put a 2" longer shackle in there to make the shackle work correctly. I do not have but a bout 10 gals. of fuel in it (35 gal tank) and no top.

    OK now for the question: How much do ya'll think the springs will compress down and settle out to? I need to get the front up but I do not want to over lift it. There is about a 4" differnce for front to rear right now. Thanks for your time. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Get about 400 lbs worth of friends to stand in the back and that will be your answer.
