Re: suspension opinions

I'm going to do something similar.

Front will be 4" Big Dick's Suspension springs with ORD's beefy front spring shackles which actually give you a little bit of extra lift. If I need any more lift I'll put in ORD 1" zero rate add a leaves.
Rear will get a 4" ORD shackle flip and again, if I need them, 1" ORD aal's.
