    Ol\' Saggy...

    Hope this isn't perceived as being pompous, but I had a question.
    I put a 4” tuff country lift on my 72 Blazer and it seems to sag in the back quite a bit (maybe 2” compared to the front). I got the blocks v. the springs, since I just got new stock springs from LMC. My question is, if I got new 4” springs in the rear would that help level it our or should I go with some 5.5” or 6” springs.

    You can do a shackle flip and keep the springs, maybe a small block to adjust it if it comes out too low

    Are they normally saggy in the back? I've seen some that are, but I'd prefer it to be level.

    Re: 4\" Question

    It varies truck to truck with use but it seems to be a problem for a few people

    Level is great, the only other way is higher in the rear and I belive thats only good for towing as tounge wieght weighs down the rear... or something.... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
