Is re-arching springs a good idea or should I just do the 4" Rusty's spring lift? This is next (probably in november) on the "to do list". I've been accused of lowering my truck. NO WAY! Just sagging.

If it was me I'd go with new springs all the way around. Usually when you have springs rearched they slowly loose the new arch until you're back where you started.

As 64 trvlr said "Usually when you have springs rearched they slowly loose the new arch until you're back where you started." If you use your rig hard or haul firewood/heavy loads etc the "slowly" part of the above quote changes to "quickly" rather soon
