    I finally got my first 4x4, 84 K5 Blazer... She has a 4" Rancho lift but the thing I'm not happy with is the travel... I read the extended shock mount write up, (I'm going to do it when I can find someone to weld the back brace for me...) what are the best ways to increase travel? I have seen some of your K5s in readers rides(beautiful BTW), and If someone can give me some tips to start with, it would be apreciated... thanks..

    The first thing you should do is look everything over, and make sure that nothing is limiting the flex. Brake lines, exhaust,etc. etc. Then a cheap mod is to get sway bar disconnects from ORD. The posibilities are endless. The shock towers are another great mod to do. If your front springs have the wrap around clamps you could loosen those up also. There are tons of stuff to do, and anyone in here will have more ideas......good luck!
