Well i plan on doing the 4" shackle flip on my 88 blazer. but how would i gain the 4" on the front
springs would be best way.
There is another way?
Get a set of 4" lift springs.
I kept stock rear springs with ORDs flip and some machined zeros to correct my pinion angle as I also fitted one of HADs CV props. On the front I used EZ ride springs and zeros to get it level.
It rides as good as stock now and the flex from the shackle flip and big springs up front is great!
I did the shackle flippy on the rear, and went ahead and put 56" springs back there also... then i took the 52" stock rears and put them on the front. That raised the truck almost equally for the price of new nuts and bolts. You can remove leafs or adjust shackle length to equalize the higth.
Well i will be going the the 4" springs up front just picked a set up .
You'll prb still need some zeros on the front to level it and you may well have to alter your rear pinion angle.
