you know anyone who has access to a forklift? that would be the best way to flex it. then you could get some good measurements of how high you can lift a tire.

Very weird seeing a ranger that way. I can push the 33 up in the well on one side, drop the other 33 below the fender line on the other side in the rear but the front is lucky to travel a few inches. *gets jealous*

actually i have never even tried to flex since i bent the frame all up and put these chevy lift springs in, maybe once so idk how they really flex.. those pics i posted are kinda cheap, i just backed onto the hill didnt even try.

coil springs have a greater flex ability than do leaf springs....it is harder to compress leafs than it is coils....

It all depends on what the coils and springs are designed for.
