    first: what is a poker run? i've heard of them but i don't know what they are.

    second: is there much stiffness diff. between 4" and 6" springs. i have 4" procomps now and i'm looking at 6" tuff country EZ rides, will they end up being softer than my stiff a$$ procomps?

    third: will my suburban act much different if i go up to a 6"? i'm used to my 4" so i think i'll be fine with a 6". will i? /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    a poker run is where when you compleat a section or trail you get a card and at the end of the run who ever has the best hand wins /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    ok now the springs each brand is different and a 6in will usually be stiffer but you have a stiff 4in and are getting a soft 6in so it might be the same or a little softer than what you have now
    third it will be a little more top heavy and will lean more when cornering but shouldnt be much different than what you are used to now /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Poker run.. same as what Shannon( the dude) said

    As far as the softness is concern, you have to check with the manufacturer and get the spring rates off the sets you are looking at. A 6" spring has a greater arch so it will be stiffer, it might be real close to what you have currently if you go to the soft set.


    Will it act different.. yes it all has to do with the heigth of the rig and the striffness of the springs.


    TC's are great springs but I haven't rode in a truck with thier lift.

    ORD deals with the tuff country spring, he may have the info you are looking for.
