4\" Lifts - Recommendations & Input Please

I was just wondering which manufacturer would be good to go with when buying a 4" Lift. I have heard decent things about Superlift, bad things about Pro Comp and nothing about Rough Country (just to name a few.)Currently my Blazer has blocks in the back (someone used to have traction bars on the rear axle too) and lifted springs in the front. I want to just replace them all with one fell swoop.

I wish to achieve a comfortable ride while still having good articulation (flex) ability and not compromising handling. Who is running what on their lifted 73-87 Chevy's? How do you like the set up you have? Is it good flex yet too much body roll?

Your input would be appreciated. I know I ask alot of opinions for a lot of things on here, however I really like to get real world feedback on what others experiences have been.

Thanks! [img]images/graemlins/yourock.gif[/img]

Tough country Easy ride 4"'s in teh front, ORD shackle flip in the rear. Coloradok5.com has a chart with the spring rates of all the manufacturers, the TC's are the softest.

I've got Pro-Comp for now and they're just too stiff. I've heard only good things about Tuff Country.

Thanks dhcomp & c_rock - I will look into those. I know Rough Country is sold off e-bay. I have seen them there for a decent price. I will check it out!

Appreciate the suggestions!
