looks great, but you gotta get rid of that cali lean (i like that term hah)
mine has it a bit too, but its less than an inch so not too noticeable, but alas drop shackles don't work for me :(

yea im definently gunna replace the stock block with a 3 or 4 inch block, im not a fan of shackles because some of the guys on here say they flaten your leaf pack.

oh yea and steve i dont do much city driving but the turning raduis isnt as bad as it could be, but i didnt instal the steering stops.

shackles won't make any difference to your springs... all it does is locate the spring lower... they still arch the same and will flex the same

they flatened my springs and gave me less than half an inch of lift.

but with that being said, i also had to put an AAL in because with just a cap on the back of my tuck, the leaf pack was curved down over the overload spring. so im sure that had something to do with it to. im just saving for some 6" superlift springs :)

they have 4" springs and 6" springs, the 4" springs give 4" or lift and the 6" springs6" of lift :P i was going to get the 6" springs to replace my AAL and maybe a block or two. (yup, stacked blocks FTL)

apparently sport trac springs give about 4" of lift or so. thats another option

Oh just saw that they were talking about the cali lean. I was searching on using the explorer ST leaf springs and rear end and saw where he had commented on the same thread and didn't know if he was gonna go with that set up. LMAO no I haven't seen yet and wasn't me blowing the horn at ya this time.
