Or a lift block, or a add-a-leaf and block combo depending on load carrying capacity and lift desired.KC_JoNeS said:There was a kid on here that put the chevies under his first gen 4runner and with an extended shackle he was taller than the front. I think his shackle was 8 inches. The height is not a matter of what spring type you get, it is actually luck. Some guys run the 1/2 ton springs and get 4 inches. Some guys get 2 inches. It is all dependent upon how the spring was originally used. If you dont like the height after the swap, add a couple of leafs from a rear waggy pack or an AllPro pack. Or you can use a longer shackle. Up to you.
DARKFLY said:ok sorry to ask this but is there any differance in the two or four wheel drive springs height wise? and with the extra leaf in the 4wd would that help with the extra weight of the 4runner?
Welcome to 63" Chevy 1/2-ton Spring Swap FAQ
Does it matter if it's from a 2WD or 4WD?
No it does not matter if they are from a 2WD or 4WD. The 2WD have 3 leaves
plus and overload leaf. The 4WD have 4 leaves plus and overload leaf. The 2WD are the
most desirable because they are softer with only 3 main leaves and are good on a pickup. You can use
the 4WD but you will have to pull out one leaf. Don't get me wrong the 4
leaves will work but most guys run 3 plus overload leaf. Some just run only three leaves.
Also some people run add-a-leafs too. Just depends on what you want to achieve.
