Ways to achieve lift in the front...?

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Mar 8, 2002.

    I was looking into ways of achieving lift in the front of my truck, before I start to order my new lift. Anyone have any ideas or ways they know of to lift the front besides new springs, longer spring hangers, or add-a-leafs. I was planning on getting 6" TC springs, Hill4WD hangers, and ORD add-a-leafs. But what other ways are out there to achieve lift in the front? Let me know if you got any..... Thanks

    longer shackles and build the front mount down, give ya a lift and keeps a flatter spring.

    i agree with 55willy, a few weeks back, someone else posted a similar subject, i think some had pics of there too. anyway, i made new front spring mounts and lengthed the shackel and got 4" out of the deal. its nice to have 10" lift with the flex of a 6"
