    Hey everyone... My questions are many but I will start with what seems to be the biggest sticking point. Right now I have a 72 that needs new leaf's. So, I am looking at getting a new set (4) of either Skyjacker or Superlift springs. No blocks. Between the two... which is the smoother/softer ride? This is my daily driver and I want to be able to run the freeway at 55 as well as the trail at 5.

    So, which is softer? which is better? which one will I regret buying?

    Thanks for the help/opinions.

    I have no idea which one is softer.
    What you need to do is either look up on their website or call and ask them what the spring rate it for the springs you want.
    The lower the spring rate the softer the ride.

    Do a search, this question comes up a lot in this forum.

    That said, I really like my Skyjackers

    Superlift does not make thier superride springs for the first gen. so i would think the skyjacker would be softer but i would still call and get spring rates.
