    I was wondering which front springs everybody uses. There are a few out there and I am about to do a lift to my '82 GMC with a diesel(more weight). It's a half ton. What would you recommend? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I run Shyjacker springs, no complaints about the ride, but the price ain't so good.

    I went with Tuff Country, and am pretty happy with them. They haven't sagged (I've only had them for about a year though) and flex a whole lot with the swaybar disconnected. I got the HD ones as well.

    I have 8" skyjacker softrides in the front and 4" Tuff Country EZ rides in the rear. They both work pretty well.
