i was wondering if anyone has put 56" leaf springs with a shackle flip on their blazer or half ton what i need to know is whick leaf pack did you go with (how many leaves and how thick)? the pack i have in there is super stiff and what i want to do is take out some leaves i'm just not too sure on how many...the truck rides like shit now super stiff! I met dave (truckstuff) a while ago and I think he was saying to go with five leaves plus overload but i got too shittered to remeber [cheers] if i were to use five, which five should i use the longer ones? I think the pack that i have is from a 3/4 ton 7 leaves total plus overload, any help would be great!

The stock blazer springs are 52'. Use stock 56' 5 leaf springs from a 1/2T. You can also take 56' leaf spring from a 3/4T and remove some leafs. Have to look at the pack to see which ones to remove.
