    1 and 1.5\" lift springs?

    Does anyone make 1" or 1.5" lift springs, or both? My truck sags nicely in the rear, even with 6 leaf factory rears. Looks dumb. Not only that, since the frame appears to be slightly bent on one side, (down) .5" higher lift spring on one side should solve that problem too. Would say 1" lift rear springs, if made, cure the sag, or would it end up being "jacked up" in the rear. I hate that.

    About ride height, if the springs were level, should the front and rear fender openings up top be the same height from the ground? Just curious, since I would like to get the truck to sit level, but not sure if the wheelwells are the same "height" front and rear on the 80's trucks

    I would go to the local spring shop and have the mmake you some short lift blocks. This is what I'm doing, mine sags like that too.
