    I'm planning on swapping ford 57" front springs under the front of my blazer. I know that 57's have the spring pin about 1" further forward than 52/57's. This, in combination with a 0 rate, is making me think the front half of the spring will barely be longer than the stock 47's, but the rear will be way longer. Will this actually end up flexing better than a 47" spring?

    I have a set of 57" in the rear of my blazer and I can tell you they are SOOOOOOFFFFFTTTT. They will flex dont worry, much more than youll probably need.
