    I just went to TuffCountry's website, and it says 6". It is the largest that I can find also.

    I vaugely remember this being discussed somewhere, here or another board, or somewhere... that they do only go as high as 6"

    Is the tag with the part# still attached to the spring?
    If not it was TCI-2218.
    Aaron had been looking for a set of 8" springs and ORD got him a set. I'm pretty sure he said they were Tuff Country's.
    The fronts are made by Burbank. Long gone company, used to be a division of the Mr. Gasget corporation.

    Ron, the number is still on them. I figured the 8" on the tag ment 8" but my buddy is so paranoid. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I ended up trading him the 8" springs for his 6" kit, with shocks and driveline spacer. I didn't feel like buying new tires and I didn't think too many customers would enjoy jumping up into a burb with 8" and 38's,LOL... besides my 35's are BRAND NEW /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif more money for toys for the wagon /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
