i've been hearing alot of guys go to 52" springs up front. i purchased a set of 6" TC EZ Ride front springs from a member a while back, and now i'm reconsidering using them. i pulled my 86 C10 apart, and now i have a bare 2wd chassis sitting in my driveway. it has 52" rears on it. my buddy wants the front suspension and rear axle out of it for his project truck, but he already has a set of rear springs for it. if i go the 52" route, i'm planning on just swapping the body mount brackets side for side. since it appears it will mess with my stock bumper mounting i was thinking of building a front bumper while i was at it. i'd probably end up using 3/8" plate, bolted through the frame and body mounts as side plates for a winch mount, and then build some armor off of that. a few questions regarding these mods i have are: how much lift will i gain over stock with the 52" springs up front? i've already got crossover steering in mind for the truck, but will i need any special kit to accomplish this with the axle moved forward like i'm told 52s will do? and lastly, your opinions both for and against this swap... much appreciated.
