    I have a 4 inch Superlift Superride on my 90 Blazer. Here is my Dilemma, I want another inch or two lift. A: do I go with a front shackle lift for an extra inch or so.. or B: buy new BDS springs. I have heard good things about them but, is there really that much difference to make it worth buying a new set of springs..? I only do about 10 % offroad. I would like aa little softer ride but, flex is not too much of a concern...What do you think I need advice.. I just did a shackle flip in the rear with two inch rear spring lift..... WHat do you guys think.. there is a major difference in price like $200..my labor is no concern...

    Why not just do a 2" body lift then?

    If you only want an Inch, why not the ORD 1" body lift??

    You need a softer ride? Your Superlifts Superirdes aren't soft enough? The ones I have a pretty soft iwouldn't wnat em much softer..

    I'm assuming you need the extra inch or so up front to match the total 6" of lift out back w/ the shackle flip and the 2" springs -or did you opt for the 2.5" lift shackle flip from ORD?. The only thing I'd do is go w/ ORD's heavy duty front shackles and see if that gives you enuff lift. I wouldn't use those other shckles out there that give you 1-2" lift -I've heard bad things about those kinda shckle lifts. If thats not e-nuff I'm sure you can sell your new 4" superides pretty quick and get the bigger springs from BDS. Hope that helps! -Tommy
