    So in reading a lot of posts I see lots of talk and suggestions of using zero rate springs. What exactly is a zero rate spring :dunno: :confused: .

    My father is wanting me to set up his blazer for mild wheeling and I was planning on doing the shackle flip in the rear and installing some 52's out of a truck I have into the front of the Blazer for the front lift. I am curious about these mysterious zero rates though.

    zero rates are a piece of solid material (steel) that bolts to your spring pack usuing the center pin. they are not blocks because they are part of the actuall spring pack, so they are an "add-a-leaf". but because they area just a solid piece, they add "zero" to the spring rate meaning they dont change the spring rate at all. make sense? you might want to check out this http://www.offroaddesign.com/catalog/Zero%20Rates.htm
