    63\" rear spring ?

    What amount of lift will i get with a stock 63" spring and a 4" shackle flip? I have 8" front springs and i was wondering if it would be close or not. When using the 63" spring it will move the rear axle back correct? Just wondering before i get to far into it.

    Thanks again, Jim

    You will end up with 3 to 4" of lift with a 4" shackle flip. Most likely they will sag lower then your 52" springs.
