    I have a 71 shortbed 4wd and am working on setting it up for the dunes. Ive been looking into custom springs but they seem to have a very long wait. I need all new hangers and from what i have heard that the longest spring is best.
    Is there any lift spring for another application model truck that would be longer. I would like the longest springs possible for both the front and rear.
    ANy ideas?
    thanks Ryan

    88 up chevy pickup springs are 63 inches long and very flexy.

    Could they be used in the front?
    Do you all think i just just wait for the custom springs?
