    hey guys.i am looking to get rid of my 4 in block lift and put in a 4in spring lift in my 90 blazer anyway i just got off the phone with the guy at tuff country suspension and he told me to put a 6in lift springs in so the truck sits level so there is no "rear sag". is this true or will the blazer be jacked up to high in the rear and will this effect the drive line angles.what do you guys recommend to do? i don't want to do a shackel flip. national spring wants $650 for a pair of springs(way to much).what brand of rear leaf springs do you guys use?

    I called around locally and talked to a guy, that for $275, will make the truck ride like I want, with me doing no work. He pulls them, re-arces them, and adds a leaf. I have no clue if they could do something like that for you with the lift, but it sure is cheaper!!

    I used SuperLiftSoftride 5 1/2 inch spring pack on my rear to match up with my Rancho 4inch front. I paid about 400 for them. My rig does sit level with the hard top on. with it off it does poke up just a tiny bit in the rear but thats ok. Better than sagin!! So yes that guy is right! It's cuz all of the premade packs are made to PickUp specs not Blazer specs. Blazers have a heavier butt so thats the sag.........
