Ok Greg here's your answer with pics the rear is 4 inch springs with 3 upper coil cut. The spring sits directly on top of the axle as you know and the lowered spring at the top is compressed coil touching coil acting like a spacer at the top so to speak pic one..

So when you cut a full coil it drops the rear 1/2 inch I cut 3 that makes it 5 and 1/2 inches. I have little to no room between my bumpstop and my axle pad..

Man, that is a mean looking ride. I love the stance.

I hear ya on Oklahoma roads. Some of the worst roads I have experienced were there. Riding in a semi with a trailer or pulling any sizable load is brutal.
