Maybe I have lost my searching saavy in my old age but I cannot seem to find a single 'good' thread showing chevy 63 leafs under the rear of an Explorer. I am contemplating running them in the rear of my sport to get a few inches of rear stretch and still use an inexpensive factory leaf. If anyone could redirect me to threads with info of amount of lift, pics of install, etc. that would be spectacular.

I have seen plenty of chevy 63 installed in the back of Rangers with reverse shackles
The front hanger is moved forward, the rear hanger is flipped upside down so the shackle goes up instead of down.
Very few explorers I have seen with the chevy springs.
Most people know these springs as "64" so you may try using that in your search terms, although they actually measure 63" they have been known for years as the chevy 64" leafs

Yeah I can find the desert ranger boys doing it all day long.. I however want to keep my leafs under the frame. hmm.. this may be a challenge.

width is right, front hanger can stay where it is currently, can box rear of frame in and run a shackle off the back of the crossmember.. just curious about lift. Right now, with the front coilovers and everything measured to clear a 40" tire, it just so happens that a stock explorer leaf pack and a spring over keeps the truck level. My Appalachian American roots tell me to just flip my springs but 9th grade physics class tells me not to do that.

I should prbly update my sas thread with pics. Maybe tonight.
