What springs???
So, both my front springs are bent for the rock finder shackles. Currently have 2" man-a-fre and 3" anti invershackles. Should I, Throw down and buy HFS 4" springs (military wrap both ends) $820. Buy Downey's 4" springs (no military either end). Get a Shackle Reversal $250 and get man-a-fre 2" springs again $210(no military). I don't really like SR without going SO and don't think I'm ready for that much lift.

Skyjacker does not stand behind their springs! If they sag it's your problem! BDS is very similer (IMHO better) to Skyjacker and they back them up 100%

Farnham, you didn't say what tire you are planning on running, or what the rig will be used for. Normally, you first decide what size tire and what the rig will be used for, then that leads to which suspension system will work best for the application. There are a lot of trade-offs involved.

I forgot to mention, on my 71 FJ40, I run 33s with a 3" lift, which cost $120 for the suspension.

currently running 33's
I run 33" bfg mtr and am happy with the size. I'm sure I'll eventually go to 35's. I daily drive it 20 miles on I-70 through Dowd Junction. I'm very happy with my current 2" springs and 3" shackles OME shocks. Smooth on the road and real flexy off. The shackles find every rock thats more than 2" tall. I've had this 40 for too long and keep thinking I'll sell it and start building my 100. Problem is I like the 40 too much and can't really see parting ways with it. The 33's are terrible in the snow but are too small offroad. I can only imagine 35's to be worse in the snow. I think it makes sense to replace my 2" springs with some 4" but don;t want to end up with a real stiff ride(why I went for 2" to begin with)

anybody got stock springs?
Anyone selling stock springs? Maybe SO is an option.
