    I got my fords all ready to be put in and found out the chevy bushings don't fit, you can have one set turned down for the spring eye but the other eye is 1 5/8" where as the chevy set i have are 1.5. so I ordered a set for the 57" fords....OMG you wouldn't believe my luck..here goes....

    I can order from Compitition specialties through work..." sorry we are out..will be 5 weeks"

    So i called performance warehouse... "we don't stock it"

    called the local 4x4 shop. "we don't stock those" so I was talking to him on twhat the deal was..turned out energy suspension had a ware house fire, they have one evey 6 months for the past 15 years :O

    so as a last resort I called $wPW and they had one set left hanging around on the dusty shelfs of thier texas store, long story short they will be on my door step on monday.

    Hey, what up with the Ford springs? Are they longer and give better flex? Newbie to the full size thing and would like to get some ideas on my K5.
