    I've been planning on going w/ 56's, but should I just do the extra work and go for 64s? Truck's in the sig.

    It looks like it's not a matter of much cost difference, just more labor (i.e. moving spring mounts, etc)

    Thoughts/ideas/opinions/experience/complaints please.

    If you want mega flex, go for 64s! However, I have heard that 56's flew sufficiently for most as well.

    Oh, forgot to mention for the record. the truck is a trailer-queen trail-only rig.... streetability is of the least concern.

    Also, I forgot to make this a poll :doah:

    dude the 64's are cake to install on a pickup. Do it.
    they ride nicer and flex better. see?

    Those are 42" tires. The deck of the trailer is just under 4 feet off the ground, the truck could keep going. And he only has stock 4" shackles on there....
