will I get a better ride out of springs or blocks?
depends on what you consider a better ride...
Depends what kind of ride you talking about.
The block will keep your stock springs so ride will be the same, softer than any lift spring, but there is a risk of wheel hop or spring wrap if you plan on puting 38's
what if i go with a ladder bar set up to help with the wrap?
That works a lot of people do that to fight axle wrap and it doesn't affect the ride quality.
If you are going to spend that kind of money anyway, why not just get some high quality springs?
Also, a shackle flip gives you the same 4" as blocks with the same stock spring rate and is a much better idea IMO.
but if I go spring wont the ride be a little harsher?
I have the helper spring and 4inch blocks now but the burban has that ass sag, so I need to redo it with something alittle higher
The ride will probably be a little rougher. I have a ORD 4" shackle flip and a zero rate. The zero rate gives me that extra 1" to combat arse sag and works great.
Being a pic whore - here it is with 37's, a 4" flip and zero rates -
what do you have up front?
this is mine 6inch rough country with 33s, but i got 36 coming
I don't think that we know each other that well......yet.
4-5" ish cheap lift springs.
I ment 4 or 6 inches, leper. ha that dont sound any better does it? lol
do the flip and zero rate and dont look back at blocks and stiff springs.
what are zero rates and where can I get them and am I going to get 8inch of lift?
