Not to Hi-Jack, but what springs did you go with? V/B? What size tires/wheels are you planning on going with?

I used x code springs in the front and unmodified b springs with f350 blocks in the rear.

going to try a 35" tire. Hopefully this week!

Can you measure and tell me the clearance from the top of your tire to the fender, both front and back. I am looking into doing a spring swap this summer and haven't decided which way to go. How does it ride?
