I have just about gathered everything I need for the lift for Buster, except shocks. Those will come next week. I'm lifting the truck to clear 35/12.5/15's. For the front I have Tuff Country 4" lift springs with 1" Zero Rates. On the rear, we are doing a shadetree shackle flip and keeping the stock springs. I understand that the flip should net 4" of lift. My question is how much should I lift the rear to keep it level? With the diesel, and stock springs all the way around, it sits level if not a little a$$ high, which is not typical for a Blazer.

I am a stickler for doing things right the first time around. So would I be better off lifting the rear the same 5" or going 6-7"? To get 5", I would do the flip+Zero Rate. Otherwise, I was thinking about a flip+drop shackle to get an additional 2". I'll also be using shims to keep the pinion angles correct front and rear.

Thanks for the help.

Just do the flip and see where it sits; if you need more in the rear put some zero rates in.
