    The only reason it is 'normal' is cuz most all spring makers spec thier spring packs to Pick-Up specs. Blazers are much heavier in the butt.
    For me I have 4" front and 5.5" rear springs and my rig sits peerty level has a slight stinkbug to it but I like it like that.
    As for you? maby ORD 1" zero rate blocks will do the trick?

    How did you measure to find that the body doesn't sit level?
    Because the front wheel opening is much taller than the rear it often 'looks' like the back is lower when it really isn't. Measure to the body line to the ground front and rear and see how level it is. Mine looks like it is alot lower in the rear and it turned out to be 1/4" lower in the rear /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    You could also try looking for a post I made a while back on lift measurement and compair your measurements.
