so i haave a 92 loyale that is lifted two inchs and the engine and tranny x members along with the radius rods are spaced 1.5 inchs . i was wondering if i got king springs with  1.25  lift would the change the angle of my axle?. like would my axles then be streching 1.75 inch off stock?. Also any experience with king springs and how they ride would be apprecited. thanks for the help

Yes it will effect the angle of your axles. But they do make standard height King Springs that won't provide the same amount of lift.

If you use the ones for lift you will need to drop your crossmembers and what not so you don't eat your axles.

they do indeed, if I remember correctly, they only make one standard size for the ea82 chassis, which will only lift 3/4"-1" or so. I talked with the guys at primitive about them a couple months back.  soon as I've got the cash, i'll be picking them up.

I bought a set from Primitive a few months back. I bought the standard height which doesn't lift. There are King lift springs too, both made for the EA82. The standard height springs will lift slightly, just because your stock springs are going to be old and tired.

What diameter length are we talking to fit the king springs and keep relatively same height?
