    how well do 6\" springs flex?

    Im fixing on getting a echobit shackle flip for the rear of my k20 pickup and some superlift springs 6" lift,my question is do they flex OK? I was going to get the 8" system but the more I think about it the less I want it,theres some nice off camber trails close to me I'd like to try. I currently have a 4" suspension and a 3" body,would 38"s be a good size?

    I am running BDS 5.5" springs up front. Here's a couple of mine on a 23 degree ramp. Not too bad for a poser! My back springs are my downfall and limit travel.

    do you have to buy the whole TC lift? or can you buy just the front springs? I think I've seen TC lifts at JCwhitneys
    are they good springs? I have a pretty heavy front end,big winch bumper and winch would they sag over time?

    You can buy just the front springs. I got mine from ORD. I also got the greasble bushings at the same time.

    Stick with the 4" and 3" body, I run a 4" and 2" body and after some trimming I have plenty of room for 38's.
