    procomp makes an eight inch lift leafpack for the rear of 88-98 chevys and im going to install one in the rear of an 87 chevy shorty with moved but otherwise unaltered shackles and hangers and was wondering

    unless im missing something this alone will net more than eight inches of lift correct? any help would be appreciated

    rear of an 87 chevy shorty( with moved )but otherwise unaltered shackles and hangers ...

    that statement makes no sense , did you leave something out ?
    If you put it those leaves in with no shackle flip it will net you about 8".

    moved meaning pushed fore and aft to keep stock length wheelbase
    and unaltered specifying no change in shackle length or hanger length

    they only make a 3.5" and a 5.5" spring, I have the 3.5" W/ 2.5" shackle flip and hd 6" shackles. It works great.:D I know a lot of people that are using them in toy's because the are cheap.

    im positive they make an eight inch pair
    but anyways i decided to
    1. remove my saddle tanks in favor of a bed mounted fuel cell
    2. then move the stock mounts in order to keep an unchanged wheelbase

    this way later i can add a shackle flip if i am so inclined:waytogo:

    sound good?
