Hey guys,

You can get the stockers de-arched at any reputable suspension shop if you're on a budget. How low are you going?

Well, it's kind of backwards, but I flipped my axle on top of my diff, and ended up with about 6-7'' of drop which is too low. I've got 3-4" between the diff and the frame. I need to have more arch put into the springs to take 2-3" out of the drop. That way, I'll end up with a 3-4" drop, which is what I want. I know it sounds wierd. The spring shop I called said they couldn't re-arch my springs because they're so old and would snap. I figured replacing the 40 yr old springs probably wasn't a bad iea anyway. The spring shop is gioing build me a spring set that should get the truck where I want it. I haven't dropped the truck off yet, so if something comes up quick, I could try something else.
