So I know the old RTE springs were designed for this where they had coils of varying thickness so they would stretch. The RTE springs I have, the newer ones, would never stretch far enough. At least I can't imagine they would. Even now, with shorter Fox shocks I probably get 5 inches of dislocation on the cone. There is no way that RTE spring is going to stretch 5 inches with just the weight of a 33 inch tire and rim pulling on it. Unless there is something i'm missing... I hate the sound the cones make so I'd love another alternative.
Land Rovers are by far the best looking 4x4 on the back of a flatbed...
