    I have an 84 K10 which has what the vin# decodes as Z71 off road susp? In the front I have dual shocks and a five leaf spring pack, which I believe to be all stock, I have never seen this on any other truck of this year and was wondering if maybe it isn't stock, Even the police pkg Blazer we have at work has only a 2 leaf pack and that came with a stock 12 bolt rear and all HD equipment, I want to replace the springs on the truck anyway this spring and get something that is more comfortable with a slight more height to mount a set of 33" tires, I have had 33's on it like it is and they are good on the front but rubbed in the rear tubs slightly and looked a little to big. Anyone have anything lift wise on the small end like 2-3" advertised kits from skyjacker or whatever can you commnent on how high it is, what tire size you run how many leaves in the spring pack??

    Thanks
