    I am thinking about using 63" springs on the front and rear of my project. Do any of you no what trucks came with that size spring?

    Most poeple use the rears from 88 or newer half ton pickups. I believe most if not all IFS trucks use the 63s in the rear

    Most are trying to move their front axle forward. The aftermarket 63s have the pin centered. I'm thinking that would move the axle rearward a few inches. Although it's something to consider....
