Questions from a Newbie.
1. I just got a shell put on my truck and plan to roll with bikes and camping gear soon. Right now, with my two kids, dog, and wife I am wondering if I am hitting my bump stops when I go over speed bumps. There is a new sound that I haven't heard before, almost like I am hearing a bushing clank or something?
2. I am resigned to getting new leaf springs soonish. I don't want to alter the ride too much or lift the truck more than an inch or so (~2.54 cm hosers). Any recommendations? The OME set up sounds great but seems like more lift than I want.
3. If I upgrade the leafs am I going to need to get new shocks?
4. Does lifting your truck, in and of itself, drop your mileage or is it the bigger tires that many switch to that drops your mileage?
TLDR; I want to solve my leaf spring issue without changing the appearance or performance of my truck too much. What is a cost effective solution?
