Not sure if this has been discussed much.. I my tablet won't let me use the search button.

I am looking at doing the 63" Chevy springs and shackles. If I am correct I need the springs to be "lift springs " so I don't loose my ride height.

Can I re arch the spri:dunno:ngs myself? Well I guess I can... Have been doing some research reading and I know How To Do It.

Would you do It? :dunno:

Have you done it? :dunno:

How well did it work? :dunno:



If I do this I will do a Build Tread. :icon_cheers:

Look through my build.. I made my own spring pack usin a chevy main leaf. Works surprisingly well. I'll try and find a pic of the pack separated before I had them arched. I would have a shop arch them for u with the right equipment.

I am curious about this myself. I have plans for some chevy springs as well. I saw the article in the 88 ranger chevy leaf thread. I hadn't even thought about trying to re arch my own springs until I read that, but I will probably give it a go myself. It would definitely be cool to see a build thread. I'll make one myself if I beat you to it.:icon_cheers:
