63 chevy springs on 1st gen runner

Ok i have read a lot about doing this swap. After all my reading I have not seen anyone do it with anything but stock leads. Which gives it about a 2-3 inch lift. Well if I use 6 inch lift Chevy springs where will that put me on my runner? Do you know anyone that has done this that might know?

I'm thinking it'll put you WAY too tall. It'll probably also be pretty stiff. I doubt 6" lift springs flex that well. I found that my 63's only gave me about an inch of lift. I had to run blocks under my shackles to make up for more lift. In my opinion, the Dakar, Trail Gear, Allpro, springs do a great job for not a ton of $.
thanks, sold the 6 inch and got me some rear springs off a 2007 1/2 ton chevy. come to find out they are the same as the old chevy springs
