    At first glance I thought you had 57's on there, those springs are sitting nice and flat! Looks great, in fact, better than mine so I'm headed out to the garage to catch up! What settings did you change from and then too with the addition to the flip on your 9000's?

    On second glance... look at the size of those drums!!!

    I ended up in the middle.. I like the ride there... The bottom leaF on those springs was broken. So I just took them off..LOL Thanks for a great and easy to install product... After Blazer Fest I am going to start shoping for the disk brakes....

    I am actually setting a little high in the rear. I have a 4 inch lift in the front.. But I have no top or tailgate.. So I guess if I had that extra wieght. I'd be sitting even. I am going to try it out for a while this way.. And then decide if I want to go with the zero rates in the front..

    i just finished putting a set on my truck and netted 5.5" (maybe a tad more). and i can really feel the difference in the ride just along paved roads.

    Hey Dan:

    Did that bottom leaf make a huge difference on how the springs sit?? How was towing with it?

    Thanks,
    chris
