    Any body out there done 56's on both ends? My K20 fuel tanks sit about 1" in front of the forward spring perch, making a 62" swap not a good option. Also my stock rears are super flexy already - dont want to mess that up. (will get photos on soon) Somewhere in the back of my mind I recall reading that with the same length springs on both ends would cause bucking. I also dont want to lengthen my wheelbase for obvious reasons.

    I think MNorby did 56's all around. I'm sure he'll post up in here.

    My fuel tank kept me from going w/ 63's in the rear.... but the 56's are damn flexy enough :D

    BHintz did 56's all around. He doesn't post very often though.
