    6\" shackles and 52\" springs?

    I was heading to 57s, but in light of a few pics I've seen of Borrego's leafs... I might like to keep the 52s for a little longer. Anyone see a problem with running 6" shackles on the rear springs... seeing as I already paid for them... and the rear kinda was sagging anywho!

    Ideas? I need em quick... I am putting it all together TONIGHT. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif Get your ideas in before I build this thing all fawked up! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
