good stuff, chris, but what about droop, coming at the ramp(rock) forward???? those are the 4" lift allpros right??

I think GOAT had it right when he said that AllPro springs are geat in the front, but the rears aren't as flexy. If you take a good look at Geiger's truck in that pic, the front's are doing most of the work.

Chris, shouldn't your instructions set people up with a 25-30 degree angle? That's where the shackle belongs for optimal stuff AND droop - so at ride height it's halfway between the frame and full-droop positions.

Myself, I think I'll go with allpro's kit including springs when I SAS (It's my DD, so I *have* to have it done in one weekend)... but for the rear, it's all about the chevy's.


GOAT, how exactly are you planning on keeping the shackles from inverting?

Well Jon prefers the shackles a little more verticle than I do. If you notice the instructions tell you to tack things in place and then verify the shackle angle with about 300 lbs in the back of the truck. It's really up to the installer what shackle angle they want to put into it.
