you can add a couple leafs in with your stock spring pack. that will lift it up for cheap. or shackle flip. or extend your shackle depending on the shackle orientation

if ya want cheap, go to a hockey rink and steal some hockey pucks. they work decent.

dont really want to invest in my leaf packs since i plan to get a softride set made by carrier springs eventually. also my rear leafs are the only thing that flex's on my truck so addaleaf would stiffen it out.

foes what shop is behind princess? im intrigued

ill try to find a pic of the trucks stance right now i swear the back is 1" lower then the front lol.

why dont you stop guessing and pull out a damn tape measure

so you want cheap, and amazing suspension flex??

you can use other leaf pack springs and weave them into your existing pack to gain more arc.

shackle flip is essentially free other than 8 bolts

pick a part in in kelowna is full of blocks im sure if u have one down there then u would be able to pick some up for next to nothing...

if your going to making new leafs anyway could you not just get them to make them with the added arc you need for them ? or is this more like the quick fix? i would sooner not waist my money on blocks and u bolts and just put that money toward your springs

B whats wrong with a set made by Carrier? ive only heard a few cases of good news from them so im open to hear the dirt.



the truck has stock wedges or w/e in right now which are ~2" .... i assume id chuck those and put in a 3" block? too tired and tipsy to think but thats the plan i supose.
