    I want to lift my blazer and my 1ton pickup with a 4 inch TC kit. I was told that the I would need the four inch heavy duty kit because of the desiel being so heavy and I plan to add a bumper with winch soon. I beleave I will get better flex with a 4 inch easy ride kit. Any help would be great. Thanks


    BTW- With the blazer I will be adding a 4 inch lift with 1 ton axles. if that matters

    you really need the HD springs because the EZ's will sag fast with all the weight on the front! JMHO

    I agree HD's are the way to go, but you could also try normal 4" lift springs and a 1" ORD add a leaf. With that much weight they might sag back down to 4"

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.
