    So far your only choices (without getting too into the project) are custom springs from one of the many aftermarket spring shops or a springover up front/shackle flip out back.

    that really sucks and i can't believe that no one has made a lift for these wonderful vehicales yet but any way i guess a little custom work is in order for any altitude that i wish to seek.
    thanks anyway

    thanks but in order to get my rig to co it would take 14 hours as i live on the iowa illinios and wisconsin border and it is impossible to see me going that far just to get a little altitude... but thanks for your reply i just need sombody a little closer to home to work with.

    I'm sure they'll ship the springs to you. You can do that via UPS. Just wrap some cardboard around them so you can stick a shippig label on them! For the price of custom springs, I bet you could have a shop do the high steering conversion for a SOA. IIRC, flipping the rear shackle with a small block in the rear will level things out. What kinda tires do u wanna run anyway? These trucks are already rather tall. Or, as you say, are you just after "attitude"? <g>

    When I called them, they just asked for measurements and whatnot, no biggie. And new springs as we all know are the easiest way to get some height. Plus they can redo the spring rate and give you your kidneys back. There is no reason to have such heavy springs on a truck if it's not hauling stuff. Then again, they flex ok in a 725, but I'm sure the ambulance body helps LOL

    custom wheels are you option, unless you swap axles. 38's will hit at full stuff, but maybe not on a springover. To give you a guesstimate, 36" Swampers at full flex just barely rubbed on my 725, thanks to stubby springs. LOL>..
