    my springs are custom, but they're only about 4 or 5" ... A local shop made them, I can get you the info but I dont know that they will make 15" lift springs, or even if thats possible but they might be able to tell you if its possible, or at least point you in the right direction..

    15" is possible.... i have 13" on the back of my truck....
    well at least if you put a string from eye hole to eye hole... then measure from string down to bottom of spring pack it says 13"

    It's very possible. I've seen suspension lifts reach heights of 24-30".

    There's a local shop here that makes good springs too. I'm not sure if they make that high of lift springs, but I can check. Don't know how much shipping would be from Indiana, but it may be feasible.
