      the wheels are 15x8 and the offset i don't remember. i used to have mud tires and they stuck out past the flares a little. the 31s i have now seem like they don't stick out as far as my old mud tires did. i might get spacers but idk yet.

      from what i gather from the tire shop if you go to a + 5 to + 12 offset on your wheel you will bring your tires past your flares about 2 "

      #1: This is a picture thread.
      #2: You don't need longer shocks unless you did a suspension lift; and the "correct shock" would depend on the gained height.

      Another update got tired of superlift's crap story about their leaf springs, they will be to you by the end of this month call them to check on it sorry, end of next month, get a call from Summit racing telling me superlift called them to say end of October before they get shipped, called super lift to confirm and yes wont see them til i get back from my honeymoon. ok now that my rant is over, here is where it sits now with 36 inch IROK's. It bull dogs a little lol.

      I know this is super old but do you remember what offset/ back space you ran on the wheels? that stance is exactly what I am looking for.

      I believe adding an "overload spring" actually lowered you in the rear.

      if what you added was straight...??? you lowered your rear, and
      does NOTHING to help your rig.....

      if its the last long leaf from a F150 pack, that you added..??? that would
      help you..(somewhat) a real "add a leaf' would help you LEAPS AND BOUNDS
      more that an overload leaf....

      just my 2cents
