    I found a place selling a set of used skyjacker front springs for $100. They came off a suburban will they fit? Also does anyone know the spring rate. I've looked all over and only found spring rates for 73-87. 69-72 springs are shorter and have higher spring rates.Skyjacker won't release the spring rate they say it is patented.

    Found out that the front springs are all the same in the 69-72 year range. Pick-ups, k5s, Burbs, even 1/2 and 3/4 ton. I decided to get the springs. I will pick them up tomorrow. I will tell you guys how well they flex when I am done. I don't think they will do as well as the TC HD that I wanted, but at 1/3 the price I couldn't pass it up. Anything is better than stock! On another note I had some company in VA quote me @ $1400 for a TC suspension that did not include any labor or rear springs! They said it was the most expensive lift on the market! I asked the guy if he was serious 3 times before I hung up. Stupid.
