    Offroad Design 4\" shackle flip rear. - ?Front?

    I have a 79' Blazer Stock w/33" BFG's. I plan on 35's , a little fender trimming and I'm pretty sure on getting ORD 4" shackle flip for the back. My question is what to put on the front to level things out. - 4" Skyjacker springs? Thanks.

    Ok, thanks. -now im thinking bout 38x12.5x15's on my 15x8's.
    I may have to go with a 6" spring setup and 1" body &amp; fender trimming[​IMG].

    All depends on how much fender trimming you wanna do. Running 38s with just 4" of suspension lift (no body) is definitely possible, you'd just need to do major fender trimming. I never plan on having more than 5" of suspension lift on my current rig in addition to the 1" of body lift. If I need to fit bigger tires, thats what the sawzall is for. =)

    These guys pretty much have it lined out for the lift.
    I'd recommend the TCI springs, either that or a custom spring would be the best way to go.
