soft liftspring

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, May 16, 2001.

    i am from germany an i ride my blazer since 15 years. i installed a 2,5 " rancho lift kit . The front springs too rough. I took off one leave per side and put in a plastic insert for lower friction. All this didn't help.
    Can anybody tell me from whom manufacturer i can get soft and comfortable frontsprings.
    thanks for your help in this case.

    Hi Klaus....I think Rancho makes the soft ride springs. I've read about them before....Rancho comes to mind.

    Ranchos do ride rough in my opinion. EZ rides from Tuff country are about the softest you can buy... the regualr Tuff countrys are pretty soft too... just remeber the softer the spring the more body roll you will have.. There is a chart in the technical section w/ the spring rates. Next softest are probably the Superlift superirdes or BDS.

    Anyone got any experience with soft springs causing braking problems (pulling) or loose front ends? I was told a long time ago that my springs were a factor in my loose front end.

    I have an 87 1/2 ton Suburban and I have been considering new 4" lift springs. I need a soft ride because of a very bad back. Are the tuff country ez ride 4" springs going to ride better or worse than the stock springs?
