    I have some Skyjacker 4" rear springs on my '85 truck and they are the 56" long ones. I have been thinking of going up to 6" rear springs lately.

    Would you be interested in buying these from me so I can get my 6" springs?

    Really, there isn't much to gain going to 56" rears. A lot of them are rated a little heavier, so watch out for that, since they're supposed to go on heavier rated trucks. Flex wise, it's not a huge gain, I don't know if it's really worth a lot of effort to go to them. If you were doing custom springs, you could mess with the length a little just because it never hurts to be longer, but the GM 56's aren't going to gain a lot.
    Hope this helps
