    whats the word on the street on rough countrys 4" liht kit? any body have them? they are on sale at their web site (and in the mags) for 295.00. it comes with shocks, blocks, front springs, hardware, brake line lowering kit, plus a new steering arm..seems like a nice compliment for my shackle flip which is still sitting in the box next to me!! what do you guys think??

    I like my 4 inch.. the direction ssucked but we made sence of it.. the brake lengtheners suck.. I had to get longer brake lines and lengthen my drive shaft... But as far as the kit goes I havent had any problems... One shock was damaged in shipping and they sent me a new one to put in no charge...
    There probably the cheapest around...
    I plan on replacinf my blocks with some of their rear springs soon...
    Good Luck!


    Um... yes officer I know it's too big...

    Used an 2" all spring kit w/shocks on an 78 k-10 and a 2" with rear blocks on an 87 k5. The 78's been on for over 3 years and the 87's been on for 2 years. No problems and a good ride.

    I love my 4 inch kit. It is a full srping kit, little more money, but worth it especuially if your blazer suffers from saggy butt like mine use to. Rough country is just as good as any other lift kit, and a lot cheaper. For a few pics of my truck go to:
