    Ok here is my delima Ive got bad rear springs and 4 inch blocks hate the blocks. My goal is to get rid of the by a few different options
    1. get 4 inch springs and then get a 2.5 in shackle flip
    2 get 4 inch springs and then get 4 in shackle flip
    3 get 2 inch springs if someone makes them and get 4 inch shackle flip

    Not sure what is the best way about doing this. What springs are best for the application. Of trail crawling and some mud and some rock crawling. Thanks

    Well they are stock springs but with a 6 inch lift block.. And I want to stay with a six inch lift total. if i have to go to eight itll cost more money and dont want to go that high because of COG.

    What truck, and how do you wheel it. A nice setup IMO is a 4" flip,4" 56" rear spring, 6" shackle, remove the overload on the 56" springs and you'll end up with about 6" with lots of flex.
