    no x2. 47" fronts . stock rears are 52 or 56 long. and spring rate is way to soft for the rear. best get new rears. were are you in upstate ny.? i have some springs. whats your email ? we can talk.

    o.k. i am down by the pa border in horseheads .

    you could do this but mounts need to be moved . and ofther mods . and then you will loose lift. as stock 52" rears get you 4" lift when swaped in to the fronts.

    are you sure you didnt hear about the 52" rear to front swap. vary vary comon thing.
