    Does anyone have a gen1 with 31's or 32's but not lifted? I'd like to go bigger w/ the tires but want it to look right/realistic at the stock height.
    Please e-mail to madbishop@msn.com
    Thanks!

    Here is my previous ride on 31x10.5x15. I got no rubbing at all with the 31s. My second blazer has 33x12x15 with the same rims. It rubs once in a while depending on trail.

    Hey arq, good looking k5, mine's the same color. I don't suppose you have any of it sitting on level ground? Did I understand that you don't have that one anymore?
    Thanks for the reply!
    Pete.

    Check out the pix of mine. It's got 32s on 15"x10" wheels and the heavy-duty front springs. The rears were really sagged out, wo I put blocks in back to level it out.

    Sorry, no pix on level ground at this time. I'll try to borrow a digital camera and get a couple.

    Hey blazer72 and california, are both of your k5's factory height in the back? mine looks kind of low, and I'm thinking about adding a 1" block to just the rear. what do you think?

    Ressurection,Did you get the pic's I sent you.I forgot to mention that I have a 1"or 1.5" add-a-leaf in the rear.I believe one of the previous owners put it in to help with that saggy-ass look.

    Yes BobK, I got them, you hit the nail on the head w/ letting me know about the 1" rear lift! I found a place that will charge me $60 for blocks and hardware. It looks like it makes a difference. Thanks!

    Mine has all stock suspension, but it sits a little higher in the back (maybe and inch or so) without the hard top on.

    When that picture was taken there were no blocks at all. It was completely stock. I guess they all sit different. Hope I helped.

    My web site has pictures of both. The 70 has 32s and the 71 has 31s. Both have the original springs and have quite a bit of sag.
