SOA Leaf and shock replacement
 
Alright, so i have saggy Leafs :thumbdown: and im looking to replace adding 1.5-2" lift springs. any suggestions or comments?
and also replacing well worn out shocks, what size shocks?

The RE 1.5 reverse eye leafs are okay. I have been running them since they first came out.

Shock length is going to be determined by the leafs available flex, shock upper & lower mount placement, and bumpstops.

My application allowed for 12" travel fronts, 10" travel rears.

Well there is the right way to do it, and the wrong way.

Measuring for your application is the right way, and does not take much effort for the benefit gained.

Once you go spring over, very few components are still stock and no two will be the same, so, in order to get your monies worth, no there is no average length that will work. Grab a tape, a beer, and a buddy and stretch it out after you get the springs on. A forklift works good for this, otherwise a loading dock wall will do. A quick search here will bring up all you need on this and most any other subject.
Good luck and welcome.
