Ok I need to put a real lift on my 72 K5, the 4 inch blocks just aint working for the better and the flex sucks not to mention the 36s rub. So Im thinking 6 or 8 inch but want some flex to. Whats a Hardcore all around setup? What trick suspensions are people running here? I dont really want a plain jane skyjacker or superlift. Pics of flex would be nice if possibe.

www.offroaddesign.com is the place to visit...........they sell Tuff Country springs, reputed to be the softest available on the market. Have a set of 6" TC springs on my Burb and had a set of 4" on my K5 that I sold, good ride when I coupled them with RS9000X shocks. Also for K5-specific stuff, try www.coloradok5.com :D
