cheapy rear leaf spring tech

Recommended Posts

Measure all your leafs and look at JY for something close,or add leafs with more arch between the leafs you have.

Spring shop can re-arch and make add-a-leafs. Longer shackles could make slightly longer main spring work.

Buy overload springs,not the best option but might get an inch.

Too bad you are so far away (I'm in San Diego) I have a pair of the stock Big Ton rear leaf packs in my garage. They have the 2 very beefy overload leafs underneath the standard leafs. The 2 overloads are about 1.5" thick and the 3 leaf main pack is over 1". I took them off in 1996 and have been in the garage attic ever since. One of the packs only has a few thousand miles on it as it was a replacement for an off-road misadventure. I replaced them with a military wrap custom 5" lift set. That set was way overbuilt (6 main and 2 overload leafs) and I took one of the short overloads out as it hung down so far. They would make a great 5/8" spacer.
