Rusty's lift/ Chevy leaf Q

So I was looking at Rustys stie and all ofthe full lift kits are sua so you could get one of these and do a soa and gain a bit of lift hey... What would be the diff? Would it go something like this 3.5-4 would move up to a 5.5-6 and the 6 would be more like 8-9? The only thing would be is that youd have to buy diff shocks right ?


I got a set of 53 inch Chevy 1/2ton leafs do I need to take out any out of the packs for the front for better flex? What would happend if I wher to get them arched?

Flipping the spring over the axles will net you something like 5 inches or so, but you will need to weld on new spring pads on the tubes and also longer shocks, unless you rotate the lower shock mounts to the top of the tubes as well
