Re-Arcing TTB Springs

Speaking in terms of doing a lift , Is this bad ? Does it put the front end out ? I was under the truck tonight and looking at the front end and was wondering , why cant you re-arc the front and put a add-a-leaf in there and a bigger block in the rear ? Isnt this just what you`d get in a lift kit ? Add in some beefier drop brackets . Is this feasible ? I dont see this idea mentioned much , was just wondering why .
Thanks for any/all opinions .

Re: Re-Arcing TTB Springs

I asked a similair question a few weeks ago about the 90 250HD i'm getting. 91FordTough has a leveling kit on his TTB D50 and he has the biggest shims on his ball joints and its still not aligned right. Rough Country sells 1.5-2.5 drop bracket for like $150. If you are gonna get a leveling kit along with the re-arching of the springs give them a shot. I have a 86 F150 daily driver witrh leveling coils in it and i don't need the drop brackets. Someone said they had thiers re-arched and it only cost like $100.

Here is the Link to the other thread. Good luck

Re: Re-Arcing TTB Springs

It is of course feasible. But make sure someone does it properly, or you end up with lopsidedness or a spring that lasts at the new height for a year or so.

Oftentimes, the easiest, longestlasting, and best cost approach is a simple, full length add-a-leaf.
