    Background: 82 frame with D60 front 8" superlift springs. 14ff with DIy4x rear shackle flip. Brackets mounted backwards (opposite sides from stock) with 6" shackles for better angle. I need to know what lifted 56's will match the 8" front lift 2.5" w/ or w/o zero rate, 4". I expect the front to drop due to the weight of the diesel but do not know how much. Prefer it level, but whatever works.


    Thanks in advance.

    I have searched and spend days (cumulative) reading old post if I think they may help me. I have seen no info saying swapping a stock 56" in place of a stock 52" yields me X" of lift (if any).

    with a flip, you will need 4-5" ifted 56's, they dont net you any lift by switching from 52s to 56s

    Huh? :thinking:


    Fyi, flips & longer shackles aside, swapping from 52's to 56's springs in the rear does not net any additional lift.

    Those were the increments of rear lift on the superlift website. 2.5" and 4", I just put the zero in there to split the difference. That is what I needed to know. Ill order the 4" springs soon. Sorry if my post is hard to read. I was nervous about my first real post in here and proof read the post 20 times and still flubbed it up. Thanks for the smoking fast reply!!
