    I need a 3 in. lift spring 56 in. long to go along with the 4 in shackle flip in the back of my truck. Anybody have one or know of a company who makes one?

    2 1/2 add a leaf and build your own, if you have any other parts trucks laying around, I'm guessing but take the main leaf out of another pack, cut the eyes off of it and put it as the 2nd leaf in your pack and then the add-a-leaf on bottom, should be about right

    I was looking into 3inch/4inch lift for my 72 Blazer and I thought the ORD people said they could order a 3 inch Tuff Country spring for me. Maybe they only had it for a 1st gen. but check them out.

    Not 56's, mine are 52's, but it will still convey the point. I got a Tough Country "4 inch lift" about a year or two ago and now the front 52's are only an honest 3 1/4". Buy some 4" 56's and give them some time to sag.

    Thanks for the info guys. I think I will use the 4 in. tough country ez-rides since they will sag some. Anyone know where the cheapest place to buy only the rear springs(tc's) not a whole lift kit? I searched but havn't been able to find anything so far.
