    I was looking through the technical section on CK5 and came across the spring rate chart. The Tuff Country E-Z Ride springs have an insanely soft spring rate according to the chart. I'm assuming this means they'll flex alot more? Does anyone have any experience with these springs? Does the softer rate mean they will be more prone to sagging and excessive fatigue? Thanks

    I bought my front 4" ez rides used and they actually still sit pretty well; flex like a sumbitch. We will see how they hold up once I build my bumper and install a winch; which should add about another 150-200 pounds.

    I have tuff country 6'' ez-rides and they work great. When I first installed them, it was more like 7 1/2'' of lift untill they broke in (a couple weeks) and they haven't lost any height since. I wouldn't worry about them sagging, I jump the piss outta my K5 and they still hold their height. Besides, they are under a lifetime warranty!

    Wow, you've got some crazy flex going on. Are the 6" Tuff Country w/ no swaybar your only mods? That truck is a beautiful sight.
