I got the rear TSB done and I think it rides a little high for my liking. I did not think they would lift me as much as they did. I have a little remorse.
If anyone in the Vegas area would like to swap their 3 leaf pack off their DC let me know.

Like Will says, let it settle a few weeks before you give up on it. Mine settled back to almost the original height in a few weeks.

I got them put on yesterday. I have about 120 miles on it since they were installed. The ride at first was a little rough, but it is breaking in a little. I have been trying to hit bumps and stuff to help everything settle in quicker. The rear of my truck is 1/2 inch higher than the front now and I want it level. My coilovers are set at 2.25 inches of lift and I would like to be able to lower them a little.
The ride is a little better than the OEM springs, but the front is a little firm because I have to have the coilovers cranked up to be anywhere near the height of the TSB leafs. I would like to drop my coilovers 2 full turns or 1/2 inch, which means I want the rear of my truck to drop 1 inch. I do not think they settle that much do they? They have already settled over 1/4 inch. I hope they have a little more to them. Where can I get sand bags? I need about 500 lbs worth, seems like a pain in the ass, lol.

You are the 1st person I hear saying this about Rear leaf TSB.. Its such a awesome upgrade..... I wish the best for you.

Maybe some wood bedrails would add enough weight to bring it down a little...

I just got mine done and absolutely love it.

I hit coverleafs way faster than before. Less body roll.

Looks like he got the wrong toolbox and needed to shim it up. The bedrails do the trick. Tennessee technology at its best. It takes a redneck to interpret the redneck ingenuity.
