    No comparison. While the 52's up front seem to flex good and all, these springs are actually made to do this hardcore shiznit. They come with a hefty price tag, but they are worth every penny.

    I'd like to see some flex pics comparing the two... I've seen pictures of droop with stock 52s swapped in, and without wacky shackles I'd be surprised if any 47" spring offered more droop. The devears are unquestionably great springs, but stockers are very low spring rate and that extra 5" of length makes a LOT of difference...

    I have been thinking about getting a set of deavers or alcans and using their rear spring up front. Best of both worlds.

    If you use 2" lift 52's up front and 2" lift 63's out back, you should end up with the flexiest and highest quality 6" lift out there /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Got numbers straight from the source.

    The 6" springs should be good for 10" and are bolt in and the 5" springs should be good for up to 14" and require the shackle mount to be moved back and some other minor fab.

    I'm thinking hard of getting the 5" springs.............

    Those are some heafty prices... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    I too want the flexier ones but at only 5" lift and leaving the axle in its stock location, forget the firewall... I'd have to trim my brake pedal to keep the tire form rubbing /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I'd like some custom 52" Deaver springs made for the front that would give me about 7-8" lift AND mount them so that I can move the axle forward 2". $$$$ Guess I'll just move my BDS 4" rear springs up front... /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
