    4\" Rear Lift Spring HELP!

    Ok, I need a 4" lift spring for the back of my 96 1 ton fullsize chevy. Has to be a 63" and 1 ton rated. I tried the skyjackers for 1 tons but they are so soft my truck flattened them to -1" lift, and they were advertised 5.5"!

    So, do you know of anything available for my truck that can handle the use of a 1 ton truck and still flex well? My stock 1 ton springs are perfect for hauling and wheeling and I am hoping for something with the same spring rate just 4" taller.

    I'm running out of places to look Stephen, help! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Why not shackle flip it?
    Otherwise, you might call Alcan, they do jobs like this and might have a shorter lead time.

    I think he has a shackle flip already.

    Try calling Deaver Spring in Santa Ana. I think they have a set pre made that will work for you.

    Yep, already have your shackle flip buddy /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    But anyway, I ended up ordering some Alcan's a week ago. I figured out a way to be able to have my truck down for the 3 weeks they said they would take to make... Hopefully it's not longer than that /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif.
