    Alright I have a plan. I have a set of springs from a suburban and my Blazer Springs. What if I take the top 2 springs from my blazer and replace them onto the ones from the suburban to get rid of the rear droop. Does this sound reasonable?

    while this question is being asked...just curious if its normal for the rear to sag a little....I mean 17yrs of that much wieght should make any a$$-end sag right?

    I really doubt you will see or feel any difference.

    Why not invest in some add-a-leaves instead? They will help firm up the ride and give a small amount of lift. They can cost around $60 average.

    This would actually be like add a leafs. The top two have quite a bit of difference in the height. Plus the suburban springs have alot of leafs and the Blazer springs only have half as many leafs. This way I can get rid of the sag and actually gain some support for towing a trailer.
