    2\" rear lift springs 52\" eye to eye

    Does anybody know of anybody that makes 2" rear lift springs. Not add a leafs or blocks an actual spring?
    Anybody? Obviously Alcan, Eaton or somebody could but what about the regular manufacturers.

    got a website that lists them. I haven't been able to find anything. Oh yeah While I was thinking about it I called Eaton spring and they can get me the springs for 260 a pair. Thats a 5+1 pack or 6+1. Not too bad I guess.

    350 a pair seems a little steep doesn't it?

    Now you are getting down right PICKY aren't you /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    You asked for a spring, I found you a set /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I do think that is pricey, especially when you consider that the spring rate may or may not be in line with a front end on a truck. Did I just say front end? That must have been me thinking of my future plans for my truck.......

    Kert, BTW, I need to hit you up about a couple things, PM on its way /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That is where I'm going. 52's on the front however, I want to keep it as low as possible and still clear the 44's so, here is where I am. 2" lift springs may clear but they are a little more difficult to resell if I were to go to 4 link some day down the road. 4" lift springs would surely clear but that is a total of 8" lift. Little higher then I want to be. Damn, I am getting picky.

    Why not go with a stock spring for 4" lift, 1" zero rate, plus a 1" body lift? Then you can get by cheap and not have to worry about selling the expensive springs later. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Kinda been thinking along those lines as well kennyw. All good solutions. Just having trouble picking one for some reason. I can see my future and it has a lot of spring changing in it. Now where is the little clicky guy with an impact? sawzall, torch, grinder, no impact.

    Well if something cheap helps to answer a question for you I have a set of stock 52" springs and a clutch fan to trade for some computer parts /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Sounds good. Bring them along! How many leaves in the pack? more rust than steel, equal amounts rust and steel or mostly steel?
