you don't just run a stock rear pack up front. Ditch the overloads and then you need to mix & match and cut down leafs from different packs until you find something that works for you. I'm running 6 leafs right now which I made from a 3 separate packs. Some guys run 7, all depends what you want.

They flex great for a junkyard spring, and the big benefit is that the center pin is offset to the front so it moes your axle forward 1-1/2 inches.


Chevies that most people run are 63" which is too long IMO -- the stockers are only 48 or 51" depending on the year truck you got.. So the front hanger needs to be moved too far forward and becomes a huge rock anchor. F150s which I'm running are 56" long and there is also a chevy leaf pack thats about the same length, but I'm not too sure what its out of.
