    I currently have Rancho RS5000's dual set-up in the front and single RS7000's in the rear(bought it like this). Currently it is not lifted. I would like to do a shackle reversal in the rear and 2.5" - 4" springs in front (I'm not sure what to use in front due to so called "sag" in the rear). Also can anyone tell me how much travel these shocks have and can I lift my blaze (how many inches) and keep these shocks? Any insight to these questions would be greatly appreciated.

    If you can get the Rancho Part numbers I can tell you how long they are closed and extended. Other than that, you will have to take them off and measure them. Same applies for the lift. You want your shocks to be in the middle of their range when the truck is sitting with full weight on it.
