    ORD \"Zero rate springs\" install questions

    I have the 4" ORD shackle flip , I'm replacing the original rear springs, and throwing away the rear add-a-leafs that were on the truck when I got it. Can you use lifted springs later or are there problems with the shackles binding? The front has 4" springs and the 1/2" longer shackles in the front. I haven't had to lengthen my driveshafts yet, but if move the rear axle back 1 1/2", and the front axle forword 1" will I need to? Obviously I will be adding the 1" ORD zero rate springs. Will this cause problems if I try to go to 6" springs later, since I will probley have to trim the original center bolts. I would also like to go to crossover some day and don't want to mess that up. Thank you for your time, Aaron /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
