    what\'s a good 4\" lift.

    I am looking for a good 4" inch lift for my 1972 blazer, i'll probably be running 33 for a while untill i get 35. I put in a 2" body lift with stock suspension. i am looking for a soft ride, nothing to harsh. skyjacker, rancho, superlift???

    this is addicting, i never thought i would even go 33s, now i got them and i am thinking about going 35s. what am i doing...

    I am useing Rancho 4" in the front and Superlift 5 1/2" rear.
    Keep inmind if you buy pre-made spring packs (non-custom) they are made with Pick-Up weight specs and thats why you see alot of lifted Blazers with a saggy butt. With the combo above my rig sits nice. You can bairly see the butt is higher but I like that better than the butt hangin lower.....just a thought!
