Can the All Pro standard leaf pack handle washboard and whoops at 50+mph? Planning on Icon 2.5” rears in the near future and need a leaf pack to match. I know a Deaver J66 would be better for me, just question the longevity of the Deavers.

No standerd springs will handle whoops at 50mph without bottoming out the bumps causing the rear to severely buck uncontrollably possibly making you wreck or causing major damage to the frame and other suspension components..

lol death will ensue! Depends on the "whoops" but in most cases a standard type of rear spring will not make instant race truck... Just like having 35" tires doesnt mean you can roll over anything in your path, you still need good lines.

LOL, I had no idea. I’d imagine its got better then my stockers with an AAL. So I would need a LT rear setup for what Im asking? “Whoops, Washboards” I’m probably using wrong terminology. Just something for rough terrain.

I'm going to be going to the allpro standard pack pretty soon. No dez here so I dont hit any thing with real speed, just good washboard, ruts, and occasional whoop in the road. I do more rough trail crawling than anything with speed. The standard pack will do me just fine and probably you too, as long as you are smart about using the skinny pedal through rough stuff.

I'm not claiming to know all on any of this, so make sure you do your research! Don't take my word for it

Yeah, thats more of type of terrain I was describing, or meant to come across. I also don’t have that type of desert terrain here, just couldn’t put it in the right words.
