    56\" rear springs

    well i have looked over 200 pages and done the search. who is running 56" rear springs. will those springs center up the rear axle a little better. any pros or cons to running the springs? I have the ORD shackle flip and I am getting ready to swap in the 14 bolt and was thinking about changing springs well I was in there. guess i could let ya know about the truck. 72 blazer 8" suspension lift 3" body lift 38.5" tires, 8" springs upfront 4" in the rear with ORD shackle flip.

    I'll let you know how it goes. I am doing this, this coming weekend.

    Shackle flip with 4" lift and 56" long springs. I am told this will net me a 6" lift.

    You will still need the 1" zero rates to offset the axle back 1 1/2". I did the 4" ord flip with 56" 6" skyjacker springs and used the zero rates to move the axle back and it centered in the wheel well.This is on my 90 burb.It came stock with 56" rear springs.
