Question about 4 inch lifted front springs
Well first of all, I live in europe. I'm working on lifting my 88 K5 blazer 4 inch. I got the shakle flip from ORD because I heard good things about it, and, wel, it looks good. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] But now I have to lift the front. I know blocks are not an option to lift the front so I looked for leafs. Cheapest 4 inch lifted springs here in europe are about US$550 per leaf [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]. So US$1100 will do the trick for me [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]. But as you may understand, I'm not happy with that price. I could get custom blades, but they need figures or an exhample. And when I look at the front springs in pictures, it looks to me that all of those rotate the axle forward to line up the drive shaft. Am I correct? Well with some calculations I could figure out the curve to get the lift, but at what angle does the axle end up? Can anyone help me with the figures?
Appart from the custom leafs, did I overlook something? Some model GM with stock fronts that will make a K5 4inch higher?
Any help and/or suggestion is very much apreciated.
