Okay. I've got 160K on my original suspension and an OME upgrade is in the works. Last summer, along the Alcan Highway, I had to stop off in Prince George, B.C. and make an emergency upgrade to get the cargo off the rear – what do you call those things – jounce bumpers? The little pyramid shaped thingies that your rear end rides on if you've been a very bad boy and overloaded your truck. Anyway, the boys in Prince George saved my rear end – literally. (My word! What a product!).
Now I'm thinking I'll wait on upgrading my rear leaf springs until I've got a bit more scratch. The front springs and all four shocks won't wait: I'm replacing those. But because I've got RideRite airbags in the back, exactly how pressing is a rear leaf upgrade?
And, while we're at it, which leaves would you consider and why? Dakars? Alcans? Wheeler 5-leaf pack?
