    Got A 1986 K5 Blazer awhile back, and I'm still a newbie at all of this:

    How do I tell if I currently have a lift? There are 31" tires on it, and it all looks stock....but I'm not too sure. What would stock springs look like?

    There's a picture of it here:

    Do your front springs have a negative arch? By negative arch, are the in a slight downward u shape? If so then it is probably factory height or small lift springs have sagged back to a factory height.

    That is definitely stock height. I do agree with what was just mention about the negetive arch. The stock ones were like that.
