    You might want to contact the seller and ask if they know.

    Good question. There isn't enough legible writing to tell. I can make out a "TLK" and "CANADA" but that is about it. Do what Z3PR suggested and ask the seller. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    I remember my Rough Country Springs came with a sticker on the springs saying "Made in Canada"
    Possibly Rough Country????

    I've got superlift too. I like them, but I think if I had to do it over again, I'd get BDS.

    most springs are made in canada, even the older superlifts

    bushing color can also be a hint in the manufacture of springs, /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    also looking at the clamps i would say rancho

    i haven't heard much about them I have a 12inch superlift on my k20 an 8inch superlift on my k10 and a 6 inch superlift on my bogger I use to have a 4inch Rancho on my k10 and the ride is the same as the 8inch superlift The 6 inch was on my K20 I oredred it for my freinds Blazer but he sold the truck so I put it on my K20 it rode awsome better than stock and with alittle fender trimming I cleared 39.5 tsl swampers plus it helps that the place I work is a dealer and I get them cheaper than NTW /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
