    Well I've had the truck lifted with new leaf springs on the front (procomp) and 4" blocks in the rear. Obvioulsy blocks are a real ruff ride. Other than the local 4WPW is there anywhere else you can get longer leafs from?

    Also seeing as all blazers tend to lean to the rear is there a such thing as a 5" spring to level it out or do I need to just see if I can find a one inch block to go with the new springs?

    its a 78 rear springs are original.

    It shouldn't ride any worse than stock in the rear with blocks. What you're feeling is the brutal spring rate the Pro-Comps come with...~620 lbs/inch.

    Yep, it's those new front springs that are rattling your teeth. Procomp springs are only slightly better than welding the axle to the frame. :eek1:

    Nice, so what other options do I have? Any other manufacturer that are reasonably priced? all I need are the springs.

    Yep, Tuff Country and BDS are the softest ones out there. Some folks refer to Super Lift as Super Stiff, so they might not be much better than what you already have.

    You can get the Tuff Country springs from www.offroaddesign.com

    hey guys, I know the Tuff Country EZ-Rides are smooothh, but what about the Tuff Country HD's? I got those on reccomendation because of the big block and winch up front. I haven't installed them yet, but am I in for a bone jarring ride? Doing a shackle flip out back, so with the already stiff overloads that were in there it couldn't be much worse right?

    shackle flip the rear. Sky, ORD and DIY4x4 all make good products. They will provide 4'' of lift, so you wont need blocks. I personally like TC springs the best, nicest ride and best articulation.
