    How much lift? (stock rear springs minus overload, currently 3 leaf in negative arch)
    whats involved, front hanger moves forward longer shackles?
    Drop front mount down or use shims for pinion angle?
    does the drag link need modified?
    Location of axle after spring swap (forward backward, good bad)?

    PICS!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    As I just posted in Non4x4, searching officially sucks. See, told ya. But I can tell ya this, if you did a search on this topic, and you didn't find anything, then your search technique sucks..... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    cool yeah that too much lift for right now... Looking for a couple inches in the front for little or no cash up front.

    I did a search 6 months back all forums with ' 52" springs front '
    and it came back with no matches /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Just in case you didn't know, you have to change it to "And" not "Entire phrase" and extend the date range.

    If you are wanting a cheap 2" lift for your plow blazer the add a leaf lift would probably be perfect with the extra weight you carry around /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'll be waiting for that write-up too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I actually, have a set of rear springs on the front of the 89 that I drug home. But it's just sitting there, I put 2 bolts up front and let the rear part just sit on the frame, I was trying to think of a way to mount those,looks like it'd be a easy way for a lift kit.I'll keep look out for that write-up.
