yea actually i did think there for a second .... but i still want to keep the flex i got now i get 12 inches up front an 11.5 in the rear .... blocks i would end up rippin out .... i ripped my crysler 8.25 rearend apart ..... bad pinnion angle... now a dana 44 sits in place of the old 8.25... so when i do this a sye is deffentally bein put in no hack n tap .... i was wonderin where would i get the 3 inch springs at ? an im lookin at havin to relocate the leaf spring brackets arent i? .... what do you think stock mj springs would net me ..... 10 is a lil bit on the high end but if i could get away with it i might do that... an do you remember where about you read that ...? the front i am not worried about i probally go with a long arm kit ....an yea any ideas there? thanks again ~ phil

Make sure you read the description it explains it all.

And yeah, I think you will either have to muscle up and force them into place or redo the brackets.
