    Did it lift your truck higher than advertised or was it as advertised, also do the springs tend to sag faster than others cause of their low spring rate?:confused:

    My 4" set the truck up about 5.5" from stock, of course I dont know how sagged the stock fronts were. It has settled about half an inch over the almost 5yrs its been lifted. And that includes slapping the big block in.

    My truck had BDS 6" springs when I bought it. I have never seen a 6" lift that could completely clear 37s on 10" wide rims with no rubbing under compression and lock to lock though- and these do.

    Their springs must put the truck up a bit higher then other 6" springs.
