    trying to figure out what to order here for my lift...

    my thoughts are 4" EZ rides up front with 0-rates for 5..

    i figured i want an extra inch in back to help out any eventual sag issue. so i'm looking at 6" in back or so. my initial thought was a flip for 4" and 2" lift springs.. not as simple as i thought. they are available in 52", but apparently not 2" in 56". figure if i'm back there might as well move the flip back and go 56" as opposed to 52..

    are these available?
    TC and BDS don't seem to make em..

    You can probably have the 2" lift 56" springs made... St. Louis Springs I think?

    thanks for the reply...

    well, if i have to go 2 1/2 flip and a 4" spring, i'll just go with a TC 56 in 4" to match the front EZ rides..... but i'm really trying to avoid that, seems to defeat the purpose of the flip putting a 4" spring in there...

    think i'd rather just get the TC 2" in 52 as opposed to 56, and run the 4" flip... well, i can't say i didn't try to run 56's... not sure how much the 56 helps over the 52 anyway...

    my truck with the 4" back and the 6 in front rides better than my moms stock blazer, i havent ridden in a truck with the 4" flip and 2" springs, so i dont have that to compare to but like i said i have the 6"fnt. and 4" rear(BDS) with no sway bar and mine rides and handles better than my moms stock blazer

    your running 52's , right? and your 6 1/2" in back, 6 in front.... hows that sit? level?

    i need to start a thread to find out how much better going to the 56's would be over 52's.....

    Ya i guess what ever the stock springs are, i did this before i found out about the 52 or 56 swap up front and in back, right now its a little saggy cause i haev my heavy ass 4x4 iron bumper in the back and nothing in the front, im shure once i get my 4x4 iron front bumper and winch in stalled in front it will be level again
