    heres the plan

    4" lift springs (front)
    echobit shackleflip (rear)
    1" body lift
    1" zero rates (move the rear axel back 1")
    15 x 10 wheels
    14ff rear or the eaton
    8 lug dana 44
    4.10's


    i dont want to trim body anywhere. i might trim a little of the fang in the front but nothing major

    i figure 36's. any opinions?

    <font color="green"> My opinion is that you might need to trim more than just the fang off in the front if you get flexy springs. </font color>

    Whats the differance in the softride and HD springs?
    Just the stiffness? wouldent Soft ride spring be better for everything except for heavy loads?

    You could probably get away with 35/36s but if you don't trim don't be surprised if you rub fenders every now and then. Leave your swaybar on would help too.
