    8\" lift

    How unstable would my k5 be with 8" front springs and 4" rear with a shakle flip, is that just unsafe, I want to run 44's but still want flex

    not unsafe at all...not going to flex all that well in the front...i have 8 inch front springs and trust me theyre not exactly soft and flexy...

    not too stiff but not too soft either

    but you could do it

    I run 6" superides with the hill shackles(7" of lift). It handles the same as my old 2.5". Actually it's much of a softer ride.
