52 inch leaf springs up front, 56 or 63 inch leaf springs out back, shackle flip, good to go, look at my build thread and ask this in the newbie section next time.

pull the bottom two leafs off, turn them over upside down and put them on the top... instant free 6" lift. Fuck these stupid companies that sell stupid nonsense products. Fuck the man.



when you're done, don't forget to drink your victory Big Gulp of Clorox.

lift springs suck, they always will be stiff, it's just the nature of the beast. bookmark mine and ragan's build thread, then delete this post before it self destructs in 10 seconds
