I think they are a good idea. No more squeaking, smooth ride.
Here is the best pic I have of the springs.

lots of guys here have them and there are a TON of pics if you search...

i personally have had the original ones, TSB leafs, and now the OME leafs. i'll leave it at this...i wish i would have done this immediately after i got the truck. loaded and unloaded the ride is drastically improved.

^^^^^ Hey Doc ,

doesn't the squeak from the Dakars come from the bushings and not the leaves themselves ?

I have no idea. I've greased them between the leafs on the initial install and the squeek didn't develop right away. I've been too lazy and busy to try this again. If the grease between the leafs don't work the 2nd time, I'll try something with the bushings...
