    1/4 el. seems to have faded away in the wake of coilovers and air shox.... but I think it still is a cheaper option to suspend a linked setup that is commonly overlooked.

    I've not done it on a fullsize Blazer, but this buggy had it [past tense] on both ends:

    ...and this buggy runs it in the rear in an "unusual way" - where the springs also serve as upper locating links...
