i am right at the point of needing to make a decision on front springs for my 86 runner. i have noticed most guys are running a 44044/63chevy setup which was my original plan... but... i have heard good things about Marlin Crawlers leaf springs. my question is how do they compare in both dimensions and quality/flex and life of the springs? also what marlin spring will compare to a 4'' 44044? Thanks guys:flipoff2:

doesn't matter
Exactly. I run 3 inch Tg springs that are beat down pretty hard and 1 inch Bodylift with my perchs drilled 1inch back. I tuck 40's in the wheel well without issue and still have the pinch weld in the cab and havent touched it. If it was gone I could probly fit 42's with minor rubbing if any. I kinda screwed up and shoudlnt have used the bodylift. I thought it was going to hit much harder.

Marlin springs. The 44044 springs are still Rancoho, pretty low qulaity, and bend up/sag pretty quick. Especially with 42's.
