My right side springs are really sagging. I would like to:

a. replace all four springs with something that provides a 4" lift
b. do the low budget option and have them rearched (right side only).

So, which springs and from whom for option a?; or who in the Denver metro area rearches springs? I do have a BFH but would prefer to have someone do this that actually knows what they are doing.:rolleyes:

I have the Downey 4" lift springs on my 40. They are fairly inexpensive and I have no complaints. Also, take into consideration everything else you'll need to replace/add along with the springs: Extended brake lines, shims, U bolts, shackles, bushings, shocks. If you don't need the full 4 inches of lift, the OME 2.5" kit comes highly recommended by a lot people. Kurt at Cruiser Outfitters usually has a good price on the kit.

Denver Spring can rearch springs.

Thanks Fellas.

Martin-I already have all the kit, but with saggy springs. I would prefer the rearch but need to remodel my garage/shop to get the 40 with a springover in the door.

SubZ-Thanks, that was exactly what I was looking for:)

Possibly cheaper than a re-arch and much longer lasting is the home-brew 2-3" lift I run on my 71. It'll clear 33x10,5s and still has a comfortable ride. Costs about $120.
