get a rear shackle flip I hear it works great.

Life is like a roll of toilet paper.
The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

fuck add a leaf, there gay unless you haul a heavy load.

what you do is go to a wrecker, get the front hanger(for the rear leafs) and cut the stock rear hanger off, flip the shackle around, and mount the new hanger where you want it, you can get up to about 5" lift doing that, and not lose any flex

do what i suggested, rearched springs will sag over time worse than they were before, it might cost ya 50 bucks at the most, shackle angle should be about 45* facing the back of the truck(dont know how to explain it, but have the shackle angle sloping away from the front of the truck)
