    I am looking for more articulation (droop specifically) from my stock rear springs. Unfortunately, I am still running a stock 3/4 ton pack on torsion shackles w/4" blocks. I measured the droop with the shocks attached & removed. No difference at all! I want to do the shock relocation mod (have all supplies), but no point yet. My question concerns the clamps that wrap around the spring pack. The front one has a bolt through the top. The rear is a formed clamp. Would it help to remove the bolt on the front and/or cut the upper part of the clamp off the rear? By allowing the springs to seperate some, would this allow more droop/articulation?

    Eventually, I'll do ORD shackle flip and new springs. But until then, would this help? Do you have any other ideas (cheap/free)? Thanks in advance!!! Doug

    you really shouldn't post the same thread in multiple forums, check your one in the 73-91 forum I replied there.
