check out strangerranger's how-to thread on RF, that helped me alot. its not letting me post the link here. If you have a buddy it's not hard to swap em. The hard part will be getting the same ride height as before. It might take some trial and error. I got so lucky with that. We nailed it on the first try, which was to try them in the 2nd-from-the-bottom hole on my belltech 6400 shackles. my ride height is identical to what it was before.

I think mine were off a 94-ish 4x4 explorer at the yard on belmont and marks. If you do it I would get some nice new polyurethane bushings for the springs and new u-bolts too

More detail on these springs please. Lower stance? Ride quality? Ease of installation?

Hey guys if you like used salvage parts I like PartHotlines.com. It's a great nationwide source.
