How do you like the ride on those Rough Country springs?
it rides real good. A lot better than it did before the lift, but then again, the old leafs were shot. Its deffenitly taller than the 4in. that was advertised...more like 6-7in
Nice.. What size tires are you gonna run? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
goin with 35's (315's) soon as possible.
sweetness!! i cant wait to lift my blazer too! i keep telling my dad to put lift springs in..his are shot thing rides like a rock! its a 79 custom delux..
yup , thats how mine was..rode like a john deere. (not that john deere's are bad, but...you get the picture)
ill have to pass the news on to my dad about that..he doesnt think that a lift would make it ride better but i keep telling him..
How did you end up getting the steering arm off? I had to use a sawsall to cut through the taper wedges, but it took a long time.
I used the Rough Country lift also, I really like how it handles now.
first I soaked it with penetrating oil the day before, then again when I started taking stuff off, then again before I attempted to get "it" off. I took the nuts off, beat the hell out off the arm with a hammer, put more pen. oil on it, went back in about 30-45 minutes, and beat some more..after about a hour of beating (5 minutes here-5 minutes there) around the edges and stuff..the wedges popped loose, I screwed them off with a small screwdriver (jammed into the slot to spread the cone) and pulled the arm off.. It sounds bad, but actually wasnt bad at all, just get some good penetrating oil, and put a lot into the slots around the cones. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
