    The best 4\" rear springs????

    Currently my Blazer has 4" blocks in the rear. I would like to swap in a good set of 4" lift rear springs. What are the 'best' rears ( also what are good rears)??? Thanks for the help.

    The best rear springs are stock ones.

    Ok, I think I may have choosen my words poorly. I guess my real question is of the big name common brands ( Skyjacker, Superlift, Tuff Country, etc) what is best for the money? I prefer to go with springs instead of a shackle flip and the blocks have to go. So, again thanks for the help.

    [/ QUOTE ]I went with the ORD shackle flip, but for springs, I'd say either BDS or Tuff Country. Both are quality springs and both will have a decent ride. BDS has the lifetime warrenty.
