I'm trying to improve because...When I have a load in the bed (4 metal stools), I feel like the rear will hit the bump stops over some bumps so really want to improve this. I just recently installed 5100s and that seems to help a little.
I bought the wheeler HD 4/1 leaf springs and installed them on my truck about a month ago. They are definitely stiffer(but not unbearable) and will increase your ride height despite the 'slightly higher than stock' claim on their website. (I found out through an email that they meant when the bed is loaded) Im guessing about 2" of lift. Now my problem is driveline vibes. So, i bought 3* axle shims; to be installed this weekend. Then i'll install a leveling kit so i dont look so raked out. Its been a 'can of worms for me' but, in the end i think i'll be happy. Just wish i wasnt misled.
