Thanks man, yeah these are the same springs that I have installed on every rock crawler I've ever built.  I actually go 59.5"-60" and run a longer shackle.  It keeps the springs soft and really flexy, and I off set that with stiffer shock valving and good bump stops.  I don't carry much weight, and I like the soft ride.  Springs are all done, just need to cut my shackles, currently running an old set of 6" shackles.

ya i need to do some stiffer shock in the rear she is pretty bouncy back there. getting geared though before new shocks. i don't carry weight all the time but i have been know to load her up.
86' runner nothing special
