    Unfortunately, you cant search for "56"" and ever time i found a thread about the 56'' people just say it been brought up to many time and never actully answer the question...

    ...SO that bneing said, i cant find any. I dont know where to start either,
    Can i find these in a junk yard off another car? (doubt it, but what truck)
    Most likely, i assume u buy springs for a different truck that ushually takes 56'' springs, soo what truck?
    Where can i get them? thanks guys, sorry for the ignorance, but i tried.

    And for you guys that have them, tell me what you think and if you though they were worth it.

    Using the 52" or 56" rear springs on the front will net you 4" of lift so a set of 6" lift springs will give you a total of 10". If you want a total of 6" of lift you'll need 2" lift springs.

    That said, go to ORD's page and look thru the rear suspension section. They carry Tuff Country and their listings show spring length as well as lift.

    Ahhh, see good thing i asked.

    If it better help you to understand what im exactly doing, I want about 6-7 inch lift. high enough to clear ~38s (with trimming) but still not to tipsy and plenty flexy.

    plan is SKY Manufatuing shackle flip + 2''blocks for rear(big upgrade from current 4''ers)
    AND some upgraded 6'' lift in front.


    Now new question to you nvrenuf, if i buy 56'' rear springs, can i use them up front? or will they be to stiff?
