    I just got a set of barely used stock 63 inch springs from a friend who runs a lift shop. Dang!! These are soft. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gifI guess I'll just throw it on the pile with the other cool stuff I've collected. One of these days... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Re: 63\"

    As for now, I'm thinking I will just move the front hanger forward about 7" and use these long Warrior Products shackles in the back with the ORD flip. We'll see, but this should give me alot of droop without double shackles, They are really soft. My Suburban still won't be as cool as yours though. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Aww body condition is over rated. He only looks that good cause he is young!!!!!!!! Just kiddin' Wonder if he'll ever get it painted one color? Those springs sound like an awsome find. Wish I could be so fortunate. Drove through salt lake two weeks ago. wish I would have had time to stop by.

    After I put my rock sliders on I'm going to look into some type of rear armor. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Re: 63\"

    Yeah I'm designing something like what avalanche did for the super duty. The big key will be removal of the spare tire well and slinging it out back. That way I can cut the sheet metal up and access the frame there for support. Due to my lack of a pipe bender I'll be using 2" box tubing. Should come out nice.

    Re: 63\"

    for rear armoring, I was thinking about building a rear bumper that'd wrap around the ass end using 2x8 thickwall box tubing. this'll also help to improve the current jolting ride quality, by packing some more weight in on the superstiff trailering rear springs I've got in there. of course, a 4 inch spring lift instead of blocks would probably help out too... have to see when I've got piles of money hanging around.
