    Hey guys, I've been viewing these forums for quite some time now and decided to join. I've been a member of pirate for a couple years now and heard good things about this site.:D
    Any way I’ve got a set of 8" superlift 52"springs on the rear of my fs Chevy and they don’t really flex....AT ALL. So I was thinkin of goin with a 56" long 6"lift spring and a 2" block or even a 8" lift spring if there’s one out there that actually flexes.
    So what brand name 56'' spring can I get with 6 or preferably 8 inches of lift that will actually flex.

    Thanks, My BDS fronts are really good so I guess I'll try the rears too.
    Here's a few older pics of my rig, when I get the 56'' rears on I'll get some pics of her in action.

    I might be wrong, but I don't think anyone makes more then a 6" spring in a 56" What they sell as a 8" spring is a 6" with a two inch block..
