Default Sagging Rear End!!!!

I think i figured out why blazers have a saggy rear end, especially 2 doors and zr2s. Ever since I put my tire rack on my rear end has noticeably sagged. probably almost an inch. I guess that isn't surprising since that tire rack is heavy alone and the tire weights a lot too. Guess I'll have to invest in some add-a-leafs hear soon. Lol and I was just making fun of my dad's mountaineer for having a saggy rear end I guess what goes around comes around... I wonder why gm didn't catch that little glitch and put a little heavier leaf springs in the blazers that had the tire rack.

Do you still have a spare under the blazer? Because if you just moved the weight One would think that its not "that" much different...

the spare rack weights at least 50 lbs. and the tire at the very back is putting more weight strain on the shocks than it would be underneath

I will suggest having your blazer start a buns and thigh program... lol...

But yeah, makes sense...

I had that problem. Add a leafs will only work for so long so I upgraded my rear leafs to thicker leafs and an inch taller than stock and was able to crank up the front to compensate. It worked out good
