Questions aboutRough Country Springs

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Oct 9, 2001.

    I'm getting ready to buy a lift for my 75 Jimmy and was wondering how they road?I looked at the spring rate table and they sound like they would ride as there name sounds ROUGH. LOL I had BDS on my 82 but was just checking into other springs.Thanks

    I had a 2 1/2" rancho lift on a previous blazer and it beat the hell outta me. I now have a 4" rough country lift and it rides a ton nicer! I do a lot of towing and also will be adding some custom bumpers and a winch so I need the stiffer springs. I'd buy a rough country lift all over again.

    I agree with muddin, I just put a RC lift on and although its not as good as the factory springs, it ist bad at all.

    Rough Country is a good lift. I have been quite pleased with my 4" lift. I know some complain that they are too stiff and don't allow enough flex. Well, my fenders and abused bump stops wouldn't agree. It does ride a little rough, even "bouncy" sometimes on poor pavement. But I wouldn't do it any different if I were to do it all over again. And Rough Country has been around for a very long time and they have excellent customer service.

    Maybe not as smooth as Skyjacker and such, but they cost 50% more. And I have also found that a 4" RC lift rides higher than most. A friend of mine has 4" Skyjacker and 3" body. But his truck sits about even with my 4" RC and 1" body. I'll take all the clearance for the tires that I can muster!
