    I am trying to figure out what length springs to go with in the front and rear. I am thinking prolly 63 inch springs in the rear but I am not sure what to go with for the front. Any suggestions?

    if you can make all the brackets to install them in the rear then you could do the same in the front.

    redrill the center pins to relocate where the front axle will be positioned and try to even out the front so they dont hang out past your bumper area. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
