Progressive rate springs are Not fun to install in the driveway with simple tools, though. Dropping the axle is infinitely easier.

Oh come, all the cool people are doing it.

Buy Cody's 44. Make him sell it to you. He secretly wants a 60 front. Just push him.

I didn't think progressive rate springs were considered a good idea past 3" due to various behavior properties, not the least of which is how they bow out when that tall. I participated in someone's thread a month or two ago that went into a lot more depth, and I linked to a few things that helped explain it. Time has since passed, and now I can't recall much. Who is Deaver then? I've never heard of them before.

None progressive springs can bow too. Mine sure do because of how much lift and pinion angle. This is why many people turn their knuckles or reweld their brackets.
