it\'s time for a lift, now which one?? what happened to this site? i haven't been on for a while and now my username and password don't work. i had to register over again. anywho i finally got the money together to resume fixing up the old k5. i wanted to put on a 2" lift and run 33" tires. i really don't want to go too tall because this truck is still going to be a daily driver in the winter and will see a fair amount of highway use. i live in montana so it would see weekend trips of 500 miles on a fairly regular basis. a 2" lift on my 85 blazer should be enough to flex 33's without mangling anything. my wife's 88 k5 has 33's on it now with stock springs, but any flexing results in rubbing. these are the systems i've priced so far: rough country 2" $535 includes 4 heckethorn shocks tuff country ez ride 2" $499 w/o shocks $637 w/ predator sx shocks skyjacker softride 2.5" $623 w/o shocks (pricey!!) which suspensions ride the best while still flexing and performing well offroad? another question for the gear guys. i installed 4.10 gears and locker last summer and now my truck seems to rev a little high on the highway (currently running 32's, soon to be 33's and the stock th350 auto) will 33's and the 4.10's work out for cruising at 75mph (what rpm would that be?) . next on the list after the lift is a tranny upgrade, so would i need a 4 spd auto for the amount of highway driving i want it to do? oh one last thing. keep in mind that when done this blazer needs to do it all. tow 6000lbs, 4wheel decently, and have good highway and around town manners. am i asking too much of my blazer? i hope not!!!
