    www.skyjacker.com I'm running the 6inch lift from them. The tech's are great and willing to help you all they can.

    I put 2.5 inch Superlift springs on the front of my Blazer. I had problems with them and their tech support SUCKED bad. Bunch of 'tards. I should've gone with Skyjacker, BUT the Superlift springs do ride pretty smooth.

    I had a 6" Tough Country EZ reide system, complete in my '90, nice ride and good price about $750 with everything. I was going to buy another one for my '77, but I came across a brand new complete Skjacker softride still in the box for $600 bucks, good deal (abou $1100 new!). The skyjacker has a firmer less bouncy ride, however, I do a lot of rock crawling & wheeling, and I found that the Tough country gave me much more articulation. However again, in mud and snow the tough country gave me a lot more wheel hop. All depends on what your looking for, stay away from Superlift and Procomp, the Skyjacker Softride has the best ride, I had all springs, no blocks with both.
