    2\" flip & 4\" spring VS. 4\" flip & 2\" spring?

    Whcih shoud I go with for a total of 6" of lift...obviously the 4 inch flip and 2" spring will yield the best flex, but which one would be better matched to my 6" lift front spring? Thanks a bunch...

    i would go with a 4in flip and 2.5in springs for better flex and the extra .5 would compensate the rear sag[​IMG]

    I would say a 4" flip and if you're worried about the ride height, get a 3" spring for the rear. That should have it sitting pretty nice. for a lighter truck the 2" would probaly work and you could always add 1/2" or 1" of block if you need to.

    How much less lift will you need if you take off the hard top and tail gate and go to soft top and pickup tailgate? Will it raise an inch or two on its own?
