    ok, here is the plan

    90 Blazer, has LT1/700R4/241/F10B/R10B, has a 4" lift now(front springs, rear blocks)

    right now I am doing some rust repair, so this stuff will be later this year or so


    ok, I will be getting some good tread super swampers next year some time, 38.5x14(I think) x 15

    ok, I want to do a 4" shackle flip in the rear, plus some 2" springs(total 6"), then i want to add a 1" zero rate in the front,(to bring it to 5"), offset to move tha axle forward a little(I might replace the front 4" springs with new ones to correct sagging current springs, if needed )


    will these tires clear with trimming?

    I have a D60 for the front, and am looking for a 14BFF for the rear

    also, with the 5", will I have the rome to go cross-over? or?

    :hack: to fit the tires. Also :grind: ALOT to fit 15" wheels on the D60.

    you think the tires will clear the firewall OK with the offset zero rates?

    trimming is no problem, this truck is never going to be stock again anyway, and I planned on the need to grind the calipers to fit the 15"s

    Theres people here running 40's with that much lift so it can be done. If need be you can massage the firewall a little bit with a hammer. I would go for it. :D

    heres my input

    i say go with a 4 inch shackle flip and a zero rate in the rear. 4inch spring and a zero rate in the front move axle forward and :hack: :hack: away til everything clears.

    dont bother with the 2inch springs in the rear, no need

    again JUST MY OPINION

    the thing I was thinking of with the 2" springs waas to eliminate the Blazer rear squat, but I might be ok with a zero rate, what thinknesses can i get a zero rate in?


    can I get some pics of your truck? I want to see what it looks like with the big tires and little lift

    yeah that is what I though, and I just checked too


    thing is, I want the rear to go up more then the front, especially since the rear is squating now, that was why I was thinking the rear 2" springs and not a zero rate, so just adding zero rates front and rear will not help the squating it has now


    also, how well does cross over steering fit with this little lift?

    If your springs are already sagging then definately replace them. Might as well as go 4" and not do a shackle flip. My 4" springs lifted my Blazer a tad over 5." I would think that 5" would be enough for crossover.
