    I am thinking about ordering tough country soft ride springs. Anyone running these? How is the ride and overall performance over just stock replacment. And did you need to modify your drive lines? Thanks

    I just installed Tuff Country on my 71' K5, but after installing them my front end was higher than my rear. Rough Country sent me out rear 1 1/2" add-a-leafs and now it looks alot better. I am replacing my front and rear brake lines w/ steel braided and am having the front and rear drivelines rebuilt and lengthened. As it is now, the drivelinne length is ok.

    Is the ride alot better. I still get a little bit of a stiff ride in my 72' K5 even after buying new shocks. I also probably still have the stock leafs. And I have a 4" susp lift.
