    The 52's and 56's were used on 3/4 ton but as stated the 1 tons only used the 56's.

    As for a 8" lift 56" spring I'm not sure anyone makes them. The biggest I've seen is 6". /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    most places dont list 1 ton lift kits. However BDS offers an 8" kit for the 3/4 ton trucks, w/ 56" springs. The 3/4 stuff will work just fine on the 1 ton, unless of course, you want to load it down like a 1 ton truck.

    [/ QUOTE ] 10' rear seems a bit high /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
    I've got 6" skyjackers 56" long for a 3/4 ton suburban application & that was the biggest for 3/4 or 1 ton.

    it's the new fad..called "IN HEAT" you jack the rear up 10' and the front only 10" gets all the looks. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
