View Full Version : Oddball rear springs for 80

03-19-2011, 07:16 PM
Got a pair of FOR rear springs that have been cut down to provide less lift. The person who cut them did a good job with the cut, but made them too short. He was shooting for a 2.5" lift (rather than the original 4") but ended up with much less.

Installed on my stock 80 with no 3rd row and 1/4 tank of gas, I get 21 inches from center of hub to rear flare. That's a 0.5 inch lift over the stock coils. The coils themselves are 2 inches *shorter" than the stock rear coils, so these are significantly stiffer. The ride, however, seems only slightly firmer than the stock coils I took off.

Price - Free. Pick up in the Springs.

Availability - My new springs arrive this week, so these will be available on Sat the 26th.

Doc, I will take the rear cut springs. This will get my truck back to stock.

Just let me know when and where. Thanks, Clint
