    I have the same exact truck. You said you put a shim under the rear, what degree shim did you use. I put a 4 degree shim in and i think it is to much, have not had a chance to road test it yet. Also did you use the Afco 250 front springs? How much difference does it make the ride?

    Afco 225lb Coils

    i USED THE AFCO 225 LB SPRINGS. they are great! I have them on two jumbo cabs now! I highly reccomend them. you will not bottom out anylonger in rough terain etc. after you istall these springs. I dont plan on using any heavier springs in the future either. these are perfect. I shimmed my rear axle to keep rear driveline in alignment after lifting rear with an added leaf spring. not sure what degree of angle. however on my other trucks I have used the simpler extended shackle lift and do not believe they need any shims when lifted in that manner.

    I read in another post that i thought you used the 250# models. Did you change to the 225#. Not sure which would be best. I plan on adding a receiver to the front for a winch but do not plan on a big bumper.

    Hmmm Will Have To Check On That.....

    WILL HAVE TO CHECK BUT 225 WAS STICKING IN MY HEAD. gREG USED A HEAVIER SPRING THAN i DID. AND MY HATS OFF TO HIM FOR Sourcing and making me aware of his expierience. He was the spring pioneer!

    The truck looks nice David. I tried to call you last week but didn't get an answer. I was just wondering how things were going. I think you got the 250#

    So did you add a strut spacer and replacement spring in the front? Or does the replacement spring do the lift in the front?

    DWINK...I used a 3 inch spacer and the new 250lb springs... actually gives you about 4-4.4 inches of lift. on future trucks i will use a 2 inch lift and springs as that way I wont feel the need to drop the front suspension cradle as well.

    My dad has a 91 jumbo i was going to do something to. So if I put 2" strut spacers up front and changed the springs I would not need to drop the diff?

    i might be speaking out turn here, but it's more dependent on the cv joint angle and if it binds or not weather to space down the diff. i think 2" is the safest whether via spring or spacer. anything more and you *should* drop the diff.
