    Would anybody recommend a particular lift for a smooth ride. I have a heavy duty 4" from rancho and it is too hard, even with the bigblock. I'm about to throw a dana60 and a 14 bolt under her and would like a better ride. Any help is appreciated.

    do a shackle flip (it raises it 4") and put the stock spings back, that should really soften the ride

    I've heard good things about Tuff Country EZ ride springs. Good ride and good flexing.

    Has anyone tried the Tuff Country EZ Ride Springs, I noticed they have the lowest spring rating in the guide. Just want to make sure everyone is in agreement before I throw more money at HER!!

    I don't know about front springs but on the rear the best ride you're going to get will be the shackle flip and stock springs.
