    i have a 85 longbed 8 inch lift in progress... i have a zero rate up front and its moved up and 1 1/2.. i was looking at the springs for the rear which are 56" and it looks like if i put the springs on backwards i can move the rear axle 2 or so inches back.. was wondering if i did this would it cause a loss of lift and a bad articulation.... also might change my pinion angle but thats no big deal

    52" is 26" eye to center and center to eye 26".

    56" is 26" eye to center and center to eye 30".

    so fliped 56" would get you 4" movement. comon done thing. cant coment on the lift springs like you have . someone will chime in.
