When my pickup is unladen in the bed, the leaf springs look flat to slightly negatively arched.
I just bought 240 pounds of tube sand to aid in winter traction, and now the springs are very noticeably arched. What causes a truck with 37k miles to have springs that are completely shot?
I've seen the other threads that show that the only two things that can be done are re-arching or a new spring pack.
This is about as heavy a load as I ever plan to run the truck with on a regular basis, and was thinking of the Wheeler's Alcan pack as a potential replacement since used TSB leaf springs seem difficult to come by. Not too fond of the $600 price, and I also wonder if the 2" of lift given is too much.
What are other options? Not interested in Dakars or the 3" All Pro pack, either.
