are you lowering your truck and putting 13 inch daytons on it because i dont think it will look very good with your locking hubs sticking out

what? thin leafs ride smoother and give you more flex and a better spring rate when compared to fatter ones. The ones in my F350 are 1/2" thick or more. My rear packs are a little thinner but all busted up so I want to build some packs for some height and better ride.

should have been 63's i made typo. I'll dig up what rigs they came on. They are really popular with the toyota guys.

Alot of toy owners run Chev 53's, some 63's (watch for axle wrap) in the rear, and a friend and I did a truck with high brid wagies up front. See Murdoug's toy. The front leafs were approx $650. for the pair and custom made. A little pricey, but are strong, soft ride, not "clunky" and worked well.

53's came on S10 PU, and the 63's where from the C1500 (1/2 ton PU)
