    i have an extra set of 2wd blazer rear springs i was wondering if anyone has used them for a front sping and how much lift that would give . my plan is to put those springs on the front axle and do a shakle flip on the rear, do you think that the truck will sit even afterwards?

    a guy in our offroad club here has a 4x4 chevy van. and he used 3/4 chevy pickup rear springs as front springs and that gave him like 6 inches of lift or so.
