Re: i know this is been beating to death

idk if you found out the answer, but i tried the front to rear swap, and when i put my front coils in the rear, i couldnt even get the control arms to bolt up. the tops of the lower control arms hit the axle bracket. i have 95 V8 upcountry coils, so maybe they were the limit in which the suspension could go.... i took a measurement and it was waaay over 4 inches of lift from the front coils being in the rear.
