I have an 82 chevy that i need to get more flex out of it. My ? is should i use the 62 inch springs or run a revolver type shackle. If i use the spring i will have to move the spring perch and i already have the shackle flip so what do you guys think. Just want to know what has been done before.

do a search on revolver shackles, and you will get more feedback then you want. They are kind of a sore subject around here. I would go with the longer springs, les problems. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

I would say go with longer springs. Advoid the gimmics, They arn't usally all that they are made up to be.

Hey, Kelsey, CA? That wouldn't be anywhere close to me?

I've seen the revolvers on off-road.com's potent rodent. to make it work you need to do a shackle flip w/ ORD or make your own and it worked pretty badass. i have the ORD w/ a "Springer Flip" and it works crazy. here's springers site, http://www.springersuspensions.com/ , and here is my site, 4x4.alloffroad.com i have the camo oneif you need any more info let me know

I also have the Springer set up like Scoobydanns.Its alot less work than doing a shackle flip.No cutting or welding ,just a bolt in bracket. <IMG width=640 height=480 SRC="http://www.pirate4x4.com/ubb/uploads/drt4.JPG">
