    what 6\" springs?

    I am going to order new springs and was wanting some opinions on what would work best. I know everybody says TC EZ rides but my truck has a BBC, Th400, 205, large steel front bumper, and heavy steel nerf bars. Will the EZs hold up to that kind of weight or should I go with something more stiff like the HDs. I wont be doing much extreme flexing but do want the ride to be as good as possible while having springs that wont wear out fast.

    Can't tell you what to get, but I can tell you what not to get. Avoid Genuine Suspension/Pro Comp 6" front springs.

    Not that it helps to have a THIRD vendor mentioned in only THREE posts... but here goes anyways:

    SKYJACKER! I had a 454 hangin over mine, and I love them! VERY flexy, and they ride nice on the road too.
