    I have a 4 inch lift for 73-87 Chevy/GMC. Front springs and rear blocks that i want to put on my 72 blazer and i was wondering what issues i might have?

    the front springs on your 72 will be shorter than the 73+ years but with some inginuity it can be done. The -72 are 45" the +73 are 47". I put 52" rear springs in the front of my 71. As for the rear the block would work or +73 springs work as long as they are 52" and not 56". I shackle flipped my rear and running 56s though but in the stock setup you won't be able to. I hope I am making sense.

    thanks for the info, i plan on lifting it enough to clear my 35" baja claws and i also want to get some flex, i will get rid of the shackle reverse too as i am not a big fan of it.i will check on the lengths if the guy ever calls me back.
