Ok, I am attempting to get my 77 Powerwagon ready for RamJam, it doesnt have the flex or controllability as it should.  Many reasons why is because it still has the stock springs under the front and rear and a rear lift block, which I HATE!  I am wanting to get rid of the lift block, and I am also wanting new springs, which springs would you guys recommend, and cost is an issue.  I know of the shackle conversions, and all that which I plan on doing as well.

(now he has templates to swap to longer 56" springs....or you could go even longer with 63" springs)

They don't need to be skyjackers, they could be junkyard stockers.

I set these at 12 degrees ,we'll see how it works out, may need some more angle
I think it will need a anti-wrap bar on the back with this amount of articulation.

I'm running 63" chevy stockers off a z71 on the back of my rc, and with the blocks I get 6" of lift... I did mine this way:
I get crazy flex and the 36" swamper is centered in the wheel well.

Hmmm, alright, just mainly wanting to get away from the blocks, and have some articulation.  Will definitely look into this more.  Thanks.

These are cheap, but for my truck I suppose I will need 6", I dont want to go insane, and 6" sounds insane to me, right now I have 36" under it.  But these say something about having a lift block :(
