    Well i am planning on getting a lift kit in a few months 4 inches and i dont have the money to get the shackle flip in the back, so i am going with blocks. Well of course my springs now are totally worn, so i was thinkin about getting some springs from the mid 80's and swap them in. Has anyone done this? do u think i will run into any problems> And i think i have decided on tuff country for my lift kit, any suggestions on that
    Thanx for your help
    Colin

    <font color=purple>I beive they'll be a direct bolt in. Let me know when you are ready I have brand new rear springs on my rig with about 1000 miles on them. I too want to do the shackle flip, but I want a 6" lift so I'm gonna buy 2" rears, so I'll neeed to sell my stock ones. Let me know I too am in AZ, maybe we can negotiate a deal.</font color=purple>

    To confirm they will fit first measure from eye to eye then eye to center bolt and visa versa. If the mesurments match then your good to go!!
    Good luck

    YEs in the near future I'd like to sell my stock rear's. They are brand new about 1000miles on them, been on the truck since July last year, but blew the motor so in garage, they've never even been off-road. I"m contemplating putting the shackle flip on & putting 2" springs on for a combined lift of 6". So I'd have to sell the stockers, unless I go with 2" blocks (yuck). Anyway putting some feelers out.
