<font color=green>Hola Senor Mud[img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]! In my opinion you should get Tuff Country. They are the softest springs out there and have the most free arch, should ride at least as good as factory and flex real nice. Also, I highly recommend doing a shackle flip in the rear instead of blocks or add a leaves. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.offroaddesign.com>www.offroaddesign.com</a> sells them, but you can do a homebrew version as well.

I agree. Have run the tough country line before and they are pretty soft. Superlift is an economical way to get big lift. Stick with the tough country line and shackle flip the rear. get a good set of shocks and it should ride as good as new if you dont run a real meaty tire.

Yeah I went with a 4 in from wheelparts its called a genuine supension. Any way I wouldn't reccomend it, they sent me the wrong spring bushings for my 88 k-5. Yeah I have blocks in the back and the springs up front ride alright, not too soft though. If I were you I'd get a rough country or tough country maybe even a BDS just from hearing other peoples experiences
