    Want to show the wife some pics of some rigs flexed out on 52" fronts and 56" rears. I was talking to her about doing the swap and told her I would dig up some pics so if you have any or have links to any please post them. TIA

    Better yet, skip the middleman and go to Austink5.net and look in the member galleries. Tons of flex pics and most of the guys over there are using 52/56 combo :thumb:.

    Here is mine on 52's all the way around. I had thought about putting 56's in the back (I have them in the back yard) but real happy with the way it allready

    A buddy has 52" front and 63" rears in his K5. I'll see if I can find a better flex pic of it. It does flex the 44's like mad though.

    Just to show that stock length front springs and 56" rears can flex well if set up properly....

    44" swampers. those were new just recently. He had 40" boggers on it before. inches of lift is kinda debate-able, those are modifyed 63" rears with extended shackels and a 5" flip + body lift. but guessing at about 10".


    heres how it sits, fully capable SOB it is. 203-205 doubler twinsticked, 5.86's arb front locked rear, 12 stud hummer rims, modifyed to 11" wide

    big spring lifts tend to be useless (or incapable in this sense...) you can go high, have a soft spring rate, flex well etc. its not nessecarily big lifts, its big lifts done wrong... also going up without going out doesnt help. its just that a low cog is alot better and more desirable. get off camber on a 30* hill and youd be wish you were as short as possible...
