Anyone try these? Velvet Ride Shackles
what do they do? how do they work? not very descriptive there.
It is like a torsion spring in your shackle. They won't work with a shackle flip. Your truck will sit a bit lower in the rear with them installed, but it will ride better.
They are made for p/u's with stiff springs to ride better unloaded. Blazers have more weight on the back end and that is why it would sit lower. It would also probibaly make less of a ride difference in a blazer than a 1 ton p/u.
PM tori89k5, he has them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I run them on my pull truck and they work great. They did lower the rear approx. 3/4", but took the bone jar from potholes away. If you think you want a set I can get them for you cheaper than 4WP is advertising.
Well, I'm wanting a little lift also, so I'm thinking of the racho softride or tuff country ez-ride 2" 4 spring lift but this was a thought for the time being.
My trucks going to a car show end of march so I'm focusing on looks for the next month, maybe ride later on!? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
Yeah PM Tori....he's got them on his K5. From what I can tell they sure seem to work. We were running in Pismo and in the really rutted stuff, his truck seemed to float over it pretty smoothly as mine was bouncing all over the place! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
