    Im going to replace the front springs on my 78 GMC truck 454 (smittybuilt bumper) I want either the 2" hd or 3" hd, but Im not sure if they will sag much. I may in the future add a winch, but that's a ways off. So, do these springs sag much, (meaning if I want a 2" lift get the 3" springs??) I asked a couple local shops about ordering the Tuff country springs, and they both immediately tried to sell me another brand, and wouldnt order the TC's. Can someone recommend a reasonably priced source in So Cal??

    im running the 4" tuff country EZ rides. they gave me a little shy of 6" of lift upon installation. they've settled down to prob around 4.5-5 though after some rough treatment.

    i bought my kit from http://suspensionconnection.com

    pretty cheap. our vendor http://offroaddesign.com also sells the stuff and is a bit better if you wanna piece the lift together in a special way rather than buy a kit as advertised on the first site i gave you.

    So a little over the advertised amount. That answers my question, thanks.

    I have a pair of 4" tuff country's on the front of my truck and true they ride well, but after less than a month I lost an inch of lift...in fact not only would I not recommend them, I would go as far as to say, with only three leaves, yah they ride great...for a month! So...looking for 4" srings? I know where you can get a great deal...

    To be fair though, they do ride really nice.
