    Ok question is for the K10 in my sig line.
    I am lifting it with DIY4X B52 and DIY4X Shackle Flip. Im going to buy 4 new 52 inch springs. All the ones around here in junk yards a craped out, and my rear springs are junk to.


    My question is should I get 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton springs

    It will be driven on and offroad, will still do plenty of work so Im thinking 3/4 ton in rear might be a wise idea, would help against axle wrap due to a new 406 too.

    Im looking at a 4 inch lift and 35s.

    If you plan on getting 4 new springs, why not get new 56"s in the rear? Just mount long-side to the rear (if you want the rear axle to be in the same place) and get a longer shackle if need be.

    im not a 56 expert but I think they came in 1/2 ton to 1 ton pickups and some 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton suburbans. I remember my brother ordering some lift springs for his 1/2 ton suburban framed creation, and they asked if he had 52 or 56 inch springs.
