I am running them on my '83 with stock axles. Many broken Birfields(one by me and numerous by the previous owner) <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

suspension is all custom coils on each corner.

I run 36x12.5 SX's without a body lift or fender trimming and have nice flex. I have my 85 rears up front with an addational 4th spring added (definately needed!). I also have 2in dropped front spring hangers and 2in longer shackles. These springs move your axle 2in forward which give great tire clearence. In this pic the tre is not fully stuffed but you can see how it is perfectly centered...
For the rear, your best bet is too just run some 63in Chevy's and make custom lenght shcakles to level it out.
O'ya, I haven't broken a birf yet! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I run 36x12.50 tsl swampers on my 85 just 4 inch susp lift. At full flex it rubbed a little on the back of the wheel wells in front so now it has been trimmed. no rubbing in the rear.no body lift.

I run 36s on 10s on my '85. Front axle is moved forward about 2 inches and the footwells have been tubbed back about 3 inches. I still brush the inner fenders front and rear a little on full stuff.

I believe they are 4 wheel parts wholesales. They dont flex very much as you can tell in the picture. I will be changing them out pretty soon. Not sure what I am going to go with. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

The 4th leaf was the full length arched leaf out of my old 4in Trail Master pack. I am running 9012 (which is a must unless it's a trailer rig only). I've got 4 runs on these and they keep loosing up, but not sagging. My first trip I drove up with the shocks set on 3 F & R, and the spring flexed nice on the trail. My third trip I had to set the front on 4. Then this last weekend I had to stop part way up Ice House Rd and set all 4 to 5 and now flexing they easily max out the extended brake lines and shocks... If they get any softer, I'll have to add a 5th leaf. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

Without a body lift I had to cut holes in my frnder wells for the shocks to extend through, which are mounted to custom shock mounts. Hope this helps...
