    Cost and ease of install are also criteria to consider for this poll. Thank you for voting.

    My vote would be for 6 inch Tuff Country EZ-Ride front springs with 2 inch EZ-Rides in the rear with a 4 inch shackle flip. My $.02

    I agree, but I would go with Alcan if I had the dough. There is just something about custom springs...

    I voted for the 6" Pro Comp front springs cuz thats what I have up front.They ride ok ,flex good,and were under $200. For the rear I say Springer shackle flip with F150 springs.

    I run the EZ's also and run the 6" up front with 2" in the back with the ORD flip. I would look at 6" EZ's in the front and the Ford 57" in the rear. They are claiming good flex so that may be a cheaper and flexier route.
