    What companies out there make leaf springs? I would like URL's if posible, I'd like to check out my options. I already checked out Tuff Country, and found Rancho's international site, but not US. Any leads would be appreciated, as well as how much lift in the rear anyone thinks would cure a stock Blazers rear sag...I'm thinking 1.5-2", but I don't want to end up with the back end looking jacked up over the nose height.

    Call up Deaver Spring. Here's the URL that has the phone # listed, http://www.sbn.com/DEAVERSPRING/. They start out with a National main leaf I believe. They are the same quality, but the turn around is faster. Some of the dez racers I talk to buy from Deaver just for that reason.

    I would get National Springs if I had to do it over. They will hove more, thinner leaves that can flex more. I got Superlift springs that are pretty stiff and unfortunately say "Made in India."
