    52 in front and 57\'s in back..questions

    Ok now I am motivated to do the spring swaps but also worried, I have 2.5 inch 52's in the rear of my truck, and 4 inch 52's I just got today in the garage.

    My question is how will I aqquire the ride hight I want if I also put 57's in the rear, I assume the rear will be much lower, right now I also have the echo-bit shackle flip on it too.

    I just would hate to swap springs to wind up looking like I'm launching to the moon. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    any ideas?

    dont 57's in the rear net about 6" of lift? If so run the 2.5" lift 52's on the front to get about 6" of lift in the front and run a zero rate in the back to level it out

    thats what I am thinking so far, so I will just do the 57's first then use my old zero rate on them, for the front I will try the 2.5's but they may go down some /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
