    any one have any good luck with de-arching springs... I am kinda skeptical about it.. I think I have just too much lift.. But if I de-arch the springs i dont want them to sag and lose spring rate. what do you think?

    I don't think you can ever have too much lift... ;) If it's really a problem, you can ship them to my house, and I'll send you my worn out 4" lift springs ;)

    LOL.. 4" of lift is just not enough anymore.. it was fine for me when i was 16-17 (and had 33's) but ive moved up.. I love the lift but my shackle angle is so bad that this is my only choice with these springs. Considering Ive already moved my hangers as far as the fram will late me go (both front and back).....

    I de-arched springs once... no shocks and wheel a bit, they will fatigue and get flatter.... ;)
