    Will stock ford 57's give me the same lift as my 4" TC springs? I will also have a 7" (Bolt to bolt) shackle? I have one side mocked and it looks like it will sit lower. Does anyone know? 55willy , rcurrier44?

    Mine sat at around 4" but I used 3" wide springs, am lighter than a full size cabed truck, but moved my front spring hangers up some.
