    Anyone using Tuff Country EZ Rides 52" rear springs with 2-3" lift? Considing purchasing some to use on the front and would like to get some feedback on them good or bad.

    Do they use thicker leaves or more thinner ones,slip pads,ride soft? Would like to see some pictures of them if ya gotum!

    Thanks

    I just moved my rear TCI 2" lift spring to the front. I haven't run the truck yet, it's being built. I like the ride when they were in the rear...

    I bought them in 97', so they may be different, not sure, but mine came with pads. Also I removed the overload spring.

    I have tuff country 4" springs. They are thinner springs with pads. 1" thick overload. Rides real nice in the back! None of my friends can still get over how much nicer my lifter blazer rides over stock! Very impressed!

    I got the same lift and the ride is pretty good. Much better than the stock springs with the 4in blocks that were in there before. I recomend them to you.

    How much lift did you get with them on the front?

    Come on people I thought Tuff Country was king on CK5, there must be some more info/pics on TC rear springs out there!

    Without the overload...5-5 1/2"s.
    I extended the rear shackles, so I have 6" total.
