    4\"-6\" lift rear 56\" long springs??

    OK, who makes a decent set of rear springs (56" long for my '90 Sub), in anywhere from 4-6" of lift. I need them to be able to carry a fairly decent load, as we're looking to get a 30' Weekend Warrior trailer and I want them not to "bury" when the 1,000 pounds of tongue weight is on there. I want to eliminate the rear 3.5" blocks for better safety when towing this sled. I have thought of a shackle flip, but would rather go the spring route if possible. Thanks.

    If you have the cash. Nationals would be your best bet but
    somehow I think you already knew that.

    Use Airbags when you tow !! I think you'll make a set of lift springs last by using the bags when you tow !!

    Ask Alcan spring if they can make you some. They made me a set set of front springs and they were a third less than National.

    Where is Alcan? i have to get someone in So Cal, cause shipping would be EXPENSIVE! I checked with Deaver last night, he said $560 for a rear pair of progressive 7" lift springs.

    Alcan is in Grand Juntion, Colorado. Shipping is maybe $50. They made a set of 4 springs for a friends CJ7 for less than the price you were quoted for 2! [​IMG]
