Anyone in Middle TN who can give me some pointers?

I have a '87 M1008 CUCV and want to add 4" of lift up front and 4" of lift in the back. Thinking I also need to move the front axle forward a it for better clearance. I know some guys do 6" lifts but want to keep it Low. I think with a little trimming this will clear my 37" HMMV Tires and Wheels. I have searched and read a lot of threads on this but have never completed a project like this. Just curious if any Middle TN guys might give me some pointers on sourcing front springs and setting this up right.


Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

Look into swapping 52" springs into the front and a shackle flip kit in the rear

Thanks, for a 4" lift will 52" Junk yard springs work or do I need to order new ones from ORD or some other source?

Use junkyard ones. Gives you a flexible nice soft riding lift
