    hey all, newbie lookin for advice on which 4" kit to buy for my 74 blazer. im goin with either tuff country HD or skyjacker. main concerns are ride height and flex. i know the TC springs are super flexy, but i dont plan on doing anything really extreme.the spring rates for these 2 companies show that skyjacker has a higher free arch than TC by about 3/4", and has a higher spring rate. any and all comments are appreciated!

    go back a page or two on this forum, and you will find a couple threads dealing with the best, and cheapest, ways to lift.
    tuff country came out ahead, i think.

    I just did a Rancho kit with shocks and arm for around $450.00 ( turned out stiffer than I wanted). I ended up lifting the rear an additional 2 inches to come out level. It seams to be a comon problem most lift kits if you use blocks in the rear with your original springs.
