90-297HD inquiry

Hello Forum,
I was reading a thread titled "4 leaf springs". In there Pugga posted:

"I had the TSB pack and it still crapped out on me so I bought a new 4-leaf pack and put the Icon 3-leaf AAL in there to further help the cause".

I am currently running the Wheelers 3-leaf AAL with the 3 leaf OEM non-TSB leafs. He mentioned that the TSB springs crapped out so he bought a NEW 4-leaf pack to use with your 3-leaf AAL.

I'm asking because I want to replace my OEM 3-leaf with a 4-leaf pack and then add my 3-leaf AAL to it like Pugga did but I haven't seen any other 4-leaf packs available other than the TSB's.

The 90-297HD's are going for $199 each at General Springs & they said that there's is stronger than the TSB 4-leafs but I would like to read some reviews on them first.

Also, if someone is running the 4-leaf pack with the 3-leaf AAL, would you mind measuring the truck height from the wheels center hub to the bottom of the fender?

I was thinking of going with the OME Dakkars which cost the same but I have read that they are noisy.

I am running 4 Billies with the fronts @ .85 (with 1/4" LF Toytec spacer) but if I can raise the rear up to an inch more then I'll set the fronts at 1.75. My current specs from center of hub to bottom of fender are:

LF 21.50 RF 21.25
LR 23.50 RR 23.25

THANKS

My measurements are in the mid 23" range with a factory 4-leaf pack, the Icon 3-leaf AAL and the overload leaf. That's also with a mid-rise shell, a 3/4" plywood platform and my tools in the bed. All that weight stays in the bed full time and is probably a little over 300# total. For an unloaded truck, you could expect more lift.
