    Will be going to 56's soon to repl. my 52's rear. Noticed that ORD sell 56's that have a lift. Do they offer 56's without a lift that will flex better than anything I can get at the local wrecking yard? I'm running a 4" flip with a zero rates and inboarded rear shocks. Would like to have more flex. I already have a set of 63's but heard that 56's flex like mad without the "land anchor" problems.

    Your land anchor shackles are there with 56's just not as bad as 63's.

    The only thing we could look at is doing some custom springs for you, the TCI's are all lifted. If we go with a new stock spring, the price is high enough on a light rated spring that you're better off with a custom spring. Once you go to a custom spring, you might as well do exactly what you want and you may not end up with out of the box specs for a 56" GM spring.

    i want to run a 8" lift over stock and was wondering if the 4" lifted 52" and 56" springs will give me the same height? i run a 4" shackle flip and i need 4 more inches...and i want the flex so will the 56s work the way i want?

    You could go with either 52 or 56 and get the same height out of them. The only thing to watch is the 56's might sit a bit higher due to a slightly stiffer rate. (they are built for 3/4T's, not 1/2T)
