57\" rear spring Q\'s

I am giving it great consideration to doing the 57" spring conversion! I have 6" lift as now with stock 52's, echobit flip and a lowering shackle on a 12 bolt. Do I need a pair of 2" lift 57" springs to get the same amount of lift with 14 BFF?
Thanx for any info,
Bill

Re: 57\" rear spring Q\'s

You can build the springs however you want. I got 4 inches out of mine.

BTW, something not mentioned frequently, but you might want to run them backwards, for an extra 4" of wheelbase!

Also, get a spring clamp from autozone, or you will warp them faster.

Re: 57\" rear spring Q\'s

he is runninga flip so he won't loose any heigth, he will actually gave lift since he'll need a longer shackle to accomidate(sp?) the springs. also 63's will not fit up front. unless you have a huge dock for a bumper to hide them under and don't mind hitting eveything you try to get over.
