    I was reading some posts and it occured to me. The springrate table http://coloradok5.com/springratetable.shtml shows that the free arch is higher for softer springs. This I will assume is to keep the lift while compressed with the weight of our trucks. Now I have a 520 springrate and I think my truck rides way nicer than stock ever did, and I can flex (ask SlyDog ). So I want to know " What everyone compares their ride quality to ". Its obvious we have straight axle trucks ( NO SUCH THING AS AN SUV TO ME ) and they are not Caddy's. Just curious /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Amen to the SUV thing, mine rides like a truck, uses truck parts....so I consider it a truck and comparable to a 4x truck.

    As for the Caddy thing....yes mine is part Caddy /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Homemade Escalade done right /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Yours don't ride bad, really. You just want it to be a truck, sports car, luxury car, and a heep all at same time time /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
