    the only lift you are gonna have is the 4 inch shackle flip? or 1 inch body and zero rate also or what? id really like to run just the stock 57" spring but i need to be 8 inches in the rear, frustrating.,

    it is longer then the stock shackle which is made for a 52" spring, the longer shackle will let the 57" spring extend farther then the stock one

    yes i will be running a 4" flip with the fords, the low rider shackles which showed up the other day /forums/images/icons/cool.gif are 7.5" center to center where as a stock shackle is only 4". when I switch the ORD brackets from side to side(left on the right and vise versa) it will allow for the fords (57"
    ) to fit and also about a 1" more of lift. I am also running a 2" body.

    I have deisded to try the stock rear 52's up in the front minus the overloads. I'll be doing a play by play on the fronts as it seams to be a easy swap and moves the axle forward 1.5" at the same time.(thanks for the insight Rene)


    -Jeremy

    Josh to get 8".....

    flip (good for 4")
    low rider shackles(1.75 puts us at 5.75")
    zero rate(1" now up to 6.75)
    1" body(good for 7.75 total)
    throw in a degree shim and your at a solid 8" with nice soft springs.

    you would have to do some cutting to get it to work with a stock set up unless you moved the current set up back like rene did.
    if you use the boreggos(sp?) set up you will have about 6" of lift with the fords

    the stock flat ones flex better. go to the sky jacker site and round up the spring rating for the lifted spring.

    during my junk yarding trips i never saw one ford with out a rear sway bar or overload spring sets on it... they are nice and soft. like a shirt out of the dryer, LMAO /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    yes and if it ends up low in the rear you can add a zero rate.
