    http://coloradok5.com/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=blazer4x4&Number=644415&fpart=&PHPSESSID= that pic will show you how to move the hanger /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif. There is A TON of other little doo-dads that have to be taken into account when swapping the 52''s to the front /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif, I would say that they are too soft (in stock form) for a daily driver /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif. I am going to try putting an add a leaf in and see what that does... When I finally figure roughly what I want my spring rate to be (by experimenting with the 52''s /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif) I will probably be giving Deaver spring a call . Good luck! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
