    I am going to be getting a 6" lift for the front of my 87 K5. I was wounder which one would have more flex for rock crawling. The Tuff Country 6" EZ-Ride or the 6" Skyjacker EZ-Ride.
    I would very much like all of your opinons please on this topic.
    Thank you.

    They both make real nice springs, and both produce nice flex. Everyone is probably going to have thier own opinion on this but if I were you I would go with the Tuff Country because of the price and then put the money you saved into something else. That's just me. Later

    I am more than pleased with my Skyjacker springs, but have not heard anything bad at all about Tuff Country. I think price would be a deciding factor, had I not gotten mine cheap; Skyjackers (new, retail) are kinda pricey.
