Here is a picture of my hybrid front springs.  they have enough lift for my to run 37's granted I'm running a 3inch body lift they work with 35's and no body lift.  I like them they give me about 3 to 4 inches of lift and flex extremely well.  I'm running 6 leafs as well on mine



this picture doesn't really show how far they can flex but it was the best one I could find


all in all I think you'll be pleased.  What are you running out back?

nice shackles 

oh and I'll take some pictures of my front pack on the rig to try and get a idea of how much arch they have sorry they aren't out of the truck but I didn't take a picture of them before I mounted them up. You're look very close if not the same as mine did before I mounted them though

Makohon, shiat's looking good man. 
Coming along pretty quick.  Makes me feel like a slow poke.  I am running my rears up front as well,  I have not got the whole pack completed but with the first three springs in an 85 rear pack, the pack sit's about 1/2" higher than the 4" pro comps I have.  I will probley run a five leaf pack.  :thumbs:

Looking good. I've seen a lot of sas projects, but never 2wd to 4wd. Should be interesting. You are doing one hell of an outstanding job fabbing up all the parts so far.

Rockhound, it almost looks like you straight swapped in rears.  How did you set yours up?  I like the height yours are sittin at.

Kneedown,
Yes indeed, they bolt right in, but they are longer. You just need some banana shackles.

Here's a link to the build

Any trail run, on my site, before the AP run recently, are all with the Frankensprings. The AP Hammer run was the first with Marlin's 4".

what the hell are your opinions on the front fender.. the cut up one!!!!

Looking pretty good, I think I would cut it right along the body line about 1-2"s where you have cut it now.  Toy's have the easiest frnders to cut, just follow the body line.   :twocents:
