    There are diffrent size holes through the two polyetran-bushing metal cylinders? Is one bolt smaler than the other on the same spring? And the spring did not come with a arrow to indicate which way it goes inn. Can anyone tell from the picture which is which? (one side has 2 spring clamps, the other just 1). This is for the front and my Blazer is an 88.

    I just put the exact same springs in mine. The left side (larger bushing) goes towards the front. I believe if I remember correctly, it is impossible to put them in backwards, because the bolts are different sizes.

    Those look exactly like my Rancho 86206's. I saw a chart once and the spring rates where the same.

    Thats what I thought also, that once I was down there on my knees actually fitting it to the frame it would become selfexplainatory(sp!)[​IMG]
    Can you shed some more light on how you did the lift. Where you put the jacks. In which order you did the install etc..
    I have a strong air-compressor and all the air tools I could wish for. I also have been spraying rust-loosner for several weeks. I am thinking about using a air-hammer downwords/sideways/everywitch way on the steering arm, and I think I will just cut the U-bolts with the grinder. .
    Any input that could help this become less painfull grately apreciated.
