good for you, I, myself, am not willing to put the time or the energy to run to the dealer, bitch about my truck,etc. I am just willing to expend enough energy to buy an aal, put on new shocks in the front and rear, and go from there. Good luck with that. I just don't have the money for a whole new set of springs.

With these Deavers having thinner leaves, what kind of effect will it have on payload?

Will it increase it since there are more leaves? Will it decrease it since they are thinner? Or will it stay the same?

got the deavers in, the ride is about the same as stock with 5100's in, they need some time to break in as well as the new shocks, got about 1.5-2.0" of lift, it does feel alot better when you have a hard hit like going out a driveway with out slowing down, we will see when they break in and when i take them off road. here are some pics.

after putting some miles on them they are noisey, clanking, creaking when they are flexing. hopefully they break in quick because it is annoying. they are smooth even with all the noise.

scott at deaver told me they need to break in, I did not ask how long it will take, hopefully not long, they are quiet on the hard hits but noisey on the little road bumps and such. i just turn up the radio.

not sure what ones they are (part J66), listed on the website. I'm close so I can go take a look at what they got. I got the stock 2005 non TSB rear right now. It really is sad lol. I don't haul that much weight often, but what was going on today is just silly, it really wasnt that much weight. If they lower the payload from the TSB pack, I can deal with it.
FWIW they guy at Deaver was clueless about the TSB. I asked if it would raise height 1.5" from stock or TSB height. You had the 5100's? was the TSB done on your old leafs?

No not going to S.D im playing with sand and bricks @ home
