    Just need to know what the difference is between the front springs that are set-up for the rear shackle and the other ones?

    "Front Kits only (to go with shackle flip for rear lift) "
    "GM 2",3",4" EZride Kits 215.00 "

    vs.

    FRONT SPRINGS
    "2",3",4" EZ Rides $190.00/pair"

    Maybe I'm missing something!

    Thanks, Shane

    The front kits do come with u-bolts, the front springs are just that: springs (just get the kit)

    Is it just me or does anyone else get p.o.'d when they have to bend a new U-Bolt to get it to fit through the plate? I usually use a floor jack and something heavy to squeeze against to accomplish this. Still got the new bolt in the box, the old one works just fine.

    I use a external strut compressor on mine while they are installed on the axel; slip the plate on and remove the compressor ;-)
