Glad everything (but the stiff springs and short shocks) worked out well for you. Those cherokee springs should do the trick for you. Which shocks are you having an issue with being too short? I just received a set of skyjacker 7000's from JCwhitney.com. I beleive it was $86 for TWO shocks with a 12" stroke. You can see them on the last page of my build thread. Seem like well built shocks for the price. Im happy with them.
