    just completed installing my 8" springs. With The shackle flip on the rear the back sits up a lot higher that the front. Thought about maybe adding zero rates on the front. Any Suggestions?????

    How bad is the front sagging ??? I prefer the front too sit slightly lower then the rear.

    I'd take a leaf out of the back.

    have you put longer shackels on the front? ( most likely 8" lift /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif)

    removeing the leaf in the rear would give ya a bit more flex, or some one was talking about useing straps and chains to hold your truck down compressing the springs to the position you want and leaving it over a period of time. thuss makeing the springs sag.

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gifits a cheap way.
