    I Recintly Installed A Ranch 6" On My '73 The Flexability Of The New Springs Suck. Because I Am Building The Truck For The Rocks, I Want As Much Flex As Posible. I Already Removed The Rear Springs And Built My Own Shackle FLIP To Reuse My Incredibly Limber Stock Springs. This Made About 8" Of Lift. The Front Still Sucks, Any Ideas?

    Either a lot softer spring such as tuff country or BDS, or custom made Alcans/National/etc springs. 52s are a good swap up front too. Theres plenty of ways to gain tons of flex out of your front, even keeping leaf springs. Proper shackle angle plays into the equation a lot too.
