    i got to many options and i need about 6 or more inches of lift in the front, first set of leafs i got are 1 ton dually rear springs pretty good arch have 5 or 6 leafs with the block on top then overload, well id loose the block and overload and maybe one leaf, they are 2 and 1/4 inches wide looks maybe like 6 inch lift, next is 52 inch 4 leaf and then i got a set of 52 3 leaf with overload, i want flex but i need 6 or more lift to match my rear leafs cuz the are true leafs and no blocks, already know crossover, if i have to run a 2 inch block in the front for the 52s i can and i know most of you opose this but will not prolly reach over 30mph in this thing for i play in mud at www.custom-differentials.com and in ponds and dirt mounds so im not afraid of the blocks i will periodically check the ubolts, the 3 leafs 52s are under a short bed 2wd while the other 52s are in a 76 half ton 4x4 both junk trucks, i have more but didnt feel like diggin to get to them, also have some ford ones but :confused: :confused: :confused: dispise ford hahahaha, they do measure like 51,52 anyone need some haha, which do you think would be best, all need new polys, so they all in same condition

    stock 52s = 4" + longer shackle = 1" + zero rate = 1" + 2" add a leafs = ~7"

    the zero rates can even be made in 2" lifts. don't use blocks for your and others' safey. plus do you really wanna be the guy in the middle of the mud bog stuck with a broken block? i'd rather be the guy stuck in the middle of the mud bog because i hydrolocked the motor:haha:
