    I'm having trouble finding some 2 1/2" lift 56" Springs. What is involed in swapping 57" Furd springs. These are going in the rear of my Suburban. It's going to be combined 4" ORD flip and maybe a 1" zero rate.

    When you install the ORD flip, just put them on the wrong side. (angled back instead of foreward.) shackle angle isn't the greatest but it worked for me. If that still dosn't work for you move the hanger back about 1"

    works way better, but I needed the wheelbase. The 64's drop more. I don't have issues, but I do have a traction bar.
