    Whats better: 4\" TC rear springs or shackle flip?

    Im going to lift my 90 sub. TC is here by my house. How would the ride compare between 4" springs and a shackle flip? My rear springs seem pretty stiff already. Will I be able to load my suburban to the hilt and tow with the 4" tuff country springs or are they weaker than my stock rig? Thanks.

    The 4" will be stronger I would think, and they will probably ride about the same

    Generally, springs with less arch will ride better than springs with a lot of arch (aka lift springs). If you are happy with ride and load carrying capacity of the stock springs, then going with the shackle flip shouldn't change anything except the lift height.
