I am working on an sas on a nissan pathfinder and as of right now I have waggy springs and with 33's It puts the bottom of the fender at 48" high. I plan on 35's but that I think is just to tall. Really tippy. I would like to run some flatter springs with good flex. Nissan are pretty heavy so it can't be to soft. I was think of using full siz chevy springs and taking out some leafs. Would that work good. Nissan sit really high on the frames. Thanks for the help. <IMG SRC="smilies/blush2.gif" border="0">

63" Chevys with the overload removed. and add blocks as you need lift.

I've been kickin' around the idea of using newer blazer springs. They ride really nice and are really flat. Check out the springs on a 99-02 blazer (yeah the small blazer)

I am not really worried about the rear springs as I am front springs. I need somethig that can hold the V6 with not much arc and good flex, mostly droop. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Stock Jeep Wrangler springs would be perect.
Way flexy. A Jeep guy could tell you if the 6 cyl springs are different than the 4 cyl.

Not a Jeep guy, but the 6 cyl are different than the 4 cyl. On 6 cylinder YJ's they ran 4 leaf packs in the rear and 5 leaf packs up front. On 4 cylindey YJ's they ran 4 leaf packs on all four corners.

I've got 5 leaf packs on all four corners of my zuk and it flexes great.

I used stock 73-87 front blazer springs on my Cj 5 at all 4 corners and they flex pretty good.They are designed to hold a full size truck so the weight rate is ok for you. The only problem I have found after having the springs up front for 4 years is they tend to sag to a negative arch and you loose 1in. of lift. There are two things to be done, one I did is get another set of blazers and take the bottom of the two springs and cut the front loop, no spring eye on this one, and add it to your spring pack. When doing this dont cut the spring clamp off and put it up front so you can strap the springs together so they dont fan. I did it this way because the aftermarket add-a-leafs add too much spring rate and limit travel.The other more expensive way is to get Rancho 2.5 in. prerunner lift springs. They have 9 leaves and are super flexy and soft. The drawback to all the blazer stuff is that they are a centered pin and 23.75 to center. I think that might ruin your aproach angle. I would try stock waggys and remove leaves.
