    Need help on rear springs for 5" Trail master S10 lift. DO the longer parts of the rear spring go towards the front or rear. i.e. the center bolt is off set 1 to 1-1/2 inches. We are having a problem getting the shocks to bolt up.

    Does any one have a 4x4 S10 blazer they could measure from the center of axle to the spring eye center and tell me which dimension is longer - the front or the rear part of the spring.

    Thanks

    The shocks are the recommended Trail Master shocks - 5" longer than stock.

    I think we got it figured out. We are going to keeps the springs oriented the way thay are (the portion of the spring behind the axle longer than the part in front of the axle). We are going to remove the spring plate and relocate the shock mounts on the spring plates.
