I know that using add a leaf set ups are not the best but at the current time I cant free up the extra cash to replace the springs.
So here is what I have. My original springs are really shot, so I found a set of used springs on craigslist for dirt cheap. They have low miles and were never off road. I am going to use an add a leaf in them before I install them. I know they dont last for ever but by late spring they will all come out and be replace 4"+ springs.
Does anyone know of any that are better than others? I am trying to get as close to 3" as I can. I have also considered using one leaf from each of my old springs in some sort of combo....not sure what I am going to try yet but I'd like to hear some thoughts on it.
If I used leaves from my old pack I might be able to rebuild the packs using the thinner leaves and by this retaining some better flexibility and smoothness.
Just give me some ideas if you have any.
Thanks,
~Rich

thats not a bad idea adding a leaf from your old pack. They wont flex as good just be aware of that. you should also look into lift shackles there cheap and you can get a little over an inch of lift with them.
