    What would be the best way using 6 inch tuff country springs in the front to get 6 inch in the rear. I will be using this mostly for the dune like jumping and high speed sutff.
    Is the shackle flip the way to go? would you put blocks or add a leaf?
    Do you reccomend the heavy duty spring or the more flexy ones?
    thanks

    I really like a home brewed shackle flip and C10 springs, mine are off a 82'. This combo is a little more then six inches, more like seven. Can anyone give me exact meauserments from center of axle to the bottom lip of the wheel well with a six inch lift. My truck looks like a hot rod with the rear jack up to high in the air. Rides like a dream in the rear but the front is a little stiff.
