    im putting on a 4 ich lift. i have a 4 inch ORD shackle flip

    but how much of a lift do i need in front to make the truck level.

    im thinkin if i get a 4inch leafs for front it will sag in the back like it allways does. so maybe i should go with lower ones. i dont know i just want it level. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    id go with 4 inch springs up front and an add-a-leaf in the rear if it sags. youll never be sorry for going higher, unless its ileagle

    Just put the 1" zero rate on the rear. It should make you level out just fine.

    The Zero rate is like a block, but without the drawbacks of a block. Check out Offroad Design's webpage.

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    I'm at the same spot,right now I have 3" in back, 2" in front w/ HD shackles from ORD making it a true 2 1/2" in front(still saggy looking), but I wanted to go with a 2 1/2" shackle flip out back and that woud be 2" taller after I put in some zero rates up front( too much) , so 55 willy suggested the hill front shackles up front, they give a full 1" of lift.So it will end up being 5 1/2" in back and 4" in the front shoud be just about right.... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gifLet the bashing begin.....
