Me and my buddy put some rear springs out of an 88 4runner in the front of his truck and the springs are completly flat they lowered the truck from 3" lift spring with stock shakles to rears up front with 2" lift shakles. All we did to them was take out the over load, is this wrong? They are way soft and flex bitchen but the truck is a little low now whats with this:confused:

u could also drop the front hangar a good 2-3 inches and not have a leaf pack that looks like it should be on a earth mover
IIRC the spring rate on the rears is about 130 pounds/inch. So you're gonna have to add some leaves.

A 2-3" drop ahnger will also likely cause death wobble, with that much change in castor angle. Add leaves, everyone that has done this swap has added leaves.

we used the top 3 toy rears and the bottom 3 4"yj's (rear pack) and it has about 4" of lift maybe 5" with 2" longer shackles and a stock 84 front hanger, it flexes good way better than just the 4" yjs, but we havn't fully flexed it yet since my buddies truck needs some (minor) ;) finishing.
