    TC 6\" springs over arched?

    I am finaly installing my rear TC 6" lift springs. They appear to be to short. Even with the rear shackle pointed directly at the forward rear spring hanger they are to short by 1/2". I ordered 56" springs and that is what they are labbled. They are 58" along the arch and 51" eye to eye. are these the right springs?

    I have the same springs but in the 8" version.
    I have yet to install them but was wondering the same thing.
    I have 52's and these measure 48 eye to eye.
    I asked S. Watson about it and it is normal.
    After a bit they will start to settle.
    At any rate it looks like I am in for a good time.
