I'm doing a shackle reversal and was thinking to get new leaf spring with about 4" lift (total of 8" [36] ).
Where would be a good place to buy leaf springs ?

soon as I have the $$$ I will SAS it, not soon though (other project :) )
was looking in a 4X4 magazine, some company is making a coil SAS kit for the '99 and up Chevys
If they come up with a kit for 88-99 I will put a Ford HP Dana 44 in the front

For now though it's just IFS with 6" lift

coil sas kit sounds wicked cool...

are you gonna have rear driveshaft issues with 8" lift in the rear? i maxed out at 6" lift in the rear of my ford before i need a new one.. ie longer...

hehe, I hope not, hopefully by next weekend I'll find out
and hopefully it doesn't mean a trip to the local driveline shop :confused0006:
the truck is already running on a 6" lift right now (4" block and add-a-leaf)
I'm replacing the 10 bolt with a 14 bolt SF which is 1/2" longer on the pinion
I hope it's enough

kinda nasty

I've spent quite some time researching that
the fact is that this is a TBI motor only producing 200HP and I dont have plans to change it
plus, I'm usually light on the throttle (I have a sports car that satisfied my cravings for acceleration)
and, I don't plan to take this truck on extreme trails
this is a cheap, bolt-on alternative that I feel should be sufficient (at least for now)

we'll see, is I ever brake this one I will definetly go FF
