    i have a 77 blazer with 4" springs up front and 4" blocks in back. My ride sucks and i want to convert to a shackle flip. I was wondering if someone could make me a 6" shackle flip? I dont have the money for the 4" flip and 2" springs. I heard that borregok5 made 85mouse's. Can someone help me out? Thanks

    Get some foward rear spring hangers from a junkyard truck. I'm not sure which one for your year. I used hangers from an 82 2x4 3/4 ton. Then make a couple longer shackles.

    Depending on the condition of your springs, my flip with a longer shackle could easily provide 6" of lift. This would get rid of your blocks and produce a slightly better ride. If your looking for pre runner soft in the rear, you might dig through the local junk yards for a used pair of 86-96 Ford F150 rear leafs, 4 leaf + overload which ar 57" long. These with about a 6 1/2" long shackle should put you at 6" total lift in the rear with my kit and a little center pin relocation. The only down side to these are its super soft and flexy so towing is no longer an option.
