20" of lift? I hope that D44 is a 65" one.MTNRIDE said:Working on S.A.S. parts list, using a d44, I've heard about a superlift spring kit that offers up to 20" lift. Should I go with a set off of a parted out truck. If so which ones would be the best to acheive 12" or more lift. Thanks guys.
Which downey springs are they? Do you recommend them? Which waggy springs do you have?Timbuddha said:Why in the heck do you need 12inches of freaking lift? Brian at Front Range Off Road clears 42s with some Downey 3 inch springs and a two inch body lift. Lower is better. I am running waggy springs (7leaf) with 3 inch body and I can clear 39s. I need to lower the COG so the body lift is coming off. I only run 35s and I don't need this much lift.
As you can tell, this is my first attempt at the sas's. I have seen a lot of posts about the JC Whitney springs. Which springs from JC Whitney are the Waggy springs. I don't plan on doing any hard wheeling @ first. Would like to get a reliable setup without going overboard on price.Timbuddha said:I have the JC Whitney 7 leaf pack and I would not recommend them as they cannot handle the abuse of hard wheeling. I don't know which kind of Downey springs Brian runs, but I would recommend Marlin's new springs as I have heard nothing but good things about them. I will be running a set of their 3 inch springs as soon as they get here. Cutting fenders is a badge of courage and honor!

I have heard, to clear 40 s (39.5), I need 12" lift. I currently have 7 " total lift and just clear 36s but very stiff and topped out. Cutting fendrs isn't an option.
Going for about75% mud 25% rocks.
Thanks for the reply.
