    I found some local on Craigslist. 96 leafs are shorter and with 6" lift they should be longer. Just wonder if they will fit w/o cutting/welding. Maybe a longer shackle. Anybody tried this. I need 3-4 inches of lift and more capacity. Thanks

    95.5-97 have shorter rear springs that would require a lot of modification, Not worth it.

    But i found some leafs with 6" lift. They should be longer. I thought flatten them out and they may fit just with longer shackles. Just thinking

    with modification it will fit but that will most likely require longer pins, new u-bolts, cut off and re welded leaf spring perches and new shackles.
