    TRADE 8\" lift for 4 or 6\"

    I would like to trade my 8 inch springs both front and back for either 4 or six inch springs. Must be front and back springs. The springs are within a year old and would like the trade to be the same. the springs I have are superlift and are almost new.

    Sure you wont take rear blocks? 4" jobs are plenty safe and flex a little better...

    Do you have the Shocks and Brake lines to go with?

    the springs are super lift. they are both front and back. I bought the car with the lift on it so it's about all i can tell you. this is my first car and I have just started learning about it. it turns out that the eight inch springs even with an inch lowered transfer case and 4 degree shims made for a 27 degree angle at the pinion. I wish i would have known that. Anyways if I were to put bigger tires on right now i would be illigal so i want to trade springs fix my ring and ppinion angle and put on some big tires. I live 40 minutes north of chicago.

    Re: TRADE 8

    I live in Illinois too. I've got a 6 month old Rancho suspension on mine. You come down here one day (about a 2 hour ride) and we'll swap them straight up if you want. They're rear blocks. If you want, I'll give you some money for the difference. I don't even really want the rear springs but they'll work for a while. I want a shackle flip and 4" springs.

    Illegal? Who's pulling people over in Illinois?

    PM or email me if you're interested. I'd be willing to do it all in one day. You take my 4" stuff and I'll take your 8".

    Ive got a 4in kit that is still in the box. Shipping would be the worst cost.
