Talking Need Custom springs

I'm looking for a place that makes custom coil springs. I need 16" lift springs, aprox 29 in tall spring. They're going on a 1996 F150 with a 1979 solid Dana 44. I got to make room for the 46" tires i have

Exactly, we need pictures of the set up.

Have you considered using a 1ft "lift Perch" instead of a custom spring? Properly braced of course

Where are you going to get matching 16" lift blocks for the rear? Worst comes to worst, I've seen bricks used in a save manner, wood if you are going on the inexpensive side.

What pics do you want to see? That spring place doesn't make springs, at least the place I found.

I recommend running a stock length coil and making the axle mounts taller and frame mounts shorter should work perfect for your needs. Tractor Supply has great links you can use as well. Some form of Z-bar steering is in order as well.

Reread the post with [sarcasm][/sacasm] tags around it. Maybe the entire comment went over your head a little?

Go to tractor supply and get some ready rod and start stacking leafs.

As said above the "Z bar" set up will help your steering. Actually no need for crossover with only 16" of lift.

Super long shackles offer great stability too.

You could just weld two springs together end to end...
