I have a 97 mountianeer that im doing the full size HP44 sas in front and want to do the SOA in the rear plus a 5.5 or 6 in lift springs. I will be running 39.5tsl's will a 5.5 or 6" lift spring work with the soa? I heard superlift are very stiff so should I go with skyjacker or? and where is the best place to buy them? I know I may also need block or bl too. thanks for your help

I herd that a 6 inch ranger/broncoII spring will not give you 6in's in the explorer cus the factory arch is different from the 2. You have skyjacker springs then? I figured i would need a 6in spring and maybe block. I dont want to do a BL so that will be my last resort. thanks

You can go here and look up spring specs.

The 56 inch chevy rear springs are only an 3/4 of an inch shorter.But have the same measurement from the front eye to center pin.So you could use a chevy rear spring.
