JBG sells a 9-9.5 inch coil spring for around $160.00. I know you can order bigger one's. But I can't think of the name of the place. A guy I know just got some 14 inchers, But he waited over two months for them!

custom = money. Get the JBG 9" springs, lower your coil towers down 3", and if you need a bit more on top of that use some TTB lowers which bump you up another inch to inch and a half. That's 13" or so.

splinter, i'm only running 9" coils on my SAS'd bronco, and with cutout flares i have enough clearance to run 42's if i really wanted to. since you're cutting out the IFS, you have a totally blank slate to work with. if you already have a 3" body lift, 9" springs will give you a gross total of 12" of clearance. you'll be fine with just that setup to run 38's or 40's and have room to spare

i believe chvy boat on this site is running the 9" skyjacker coils on his 97 1 ton that used to be a 1/2 ton chevy. he fits 40s no problem and only had to trim a slight bit where he rubs. he gets a lot of flex from those coils as well. if you're not going to be rockcrawling you probably wouldn't need to trim.

Yup, splinter and I have pm'd a novel on the topic on Pirates, but I guess he did not like my answers cause hes asking again here.

I can clear 42's, just a tad bit of rubbing when trying to make a sharp turn around in the yard on the radius arms
