I am a new K5 owner. Was looking for a 4x4 late model truck like a Blazer, Ramcharger, or Bronco. I've read this forum a couple of times and know that the Ramcharger and Bronco are probably not words even to be spoken here, but I did happen to find a fantastic Blazer that I love. It is an '89 with pretty much everything stock as far as I can tell. Now I've got to let you know that I don't know that much about fixing up cars and that's where I hope you can help. My truck rides very rough over any kind of bumps and was wondering what I should look for. I was told it was the shocks. What is a good quality shock that I could put on my ride? Also, I will be looking to raise my blazer a little, and make it more off/road friendly. Where should I start? I know this is pretty vague, but anything would help. Thanks, and look forward to sharing my K5 with you as well as hearing about yours.
