Camburg vs All-Pro delivery

Camburg spindles arrived today. They were packaged so tightly I don't think a grizzly bear could open that box...took me 10 min to get it open. Nice job of packing and they look to be in super shape.

On the other hand my new All Pro Expo leafs arrived yesterday with two small parts of the springs each wrapped in plastic. The paint was chipped off of a lot of the springs due to them being so heavy and not wrapped up. Now I have to spray over them to ensure the bare metal doesn't rust. In other words...a piss poor job of packaging these things for shipping. I'm not expecting boxes because the leafs are too heavy...but at least wrap the damn things in a little bit of bubble wrap or plastic.

Other than that can't wait to get this stuff on in a couple of weeks...waiting on shocks, wheels & tires.

You might as well return the leaf springs, because you're going to shit a brick when you see what the underside of your truck will look like if you actually take it offroad and use those springs.

Not sure if you're being a serious or not but I'll bite. My point is the lack of attention when they were shipped out is gonna cost me time to fix. The last thing I want is rusty ass leafs a month after I put them on

My regular leaf pack from all pro starting rusting within a week when I installed them...and all of the paint is still on there.

Whatever you put on there, isn't going to last more than a few weeks against road spray first time it rains.

So unless you plan on painting your leaf pack every other week, I really don't see the issue.

This website has a tendency to want to put offroad inspired products on their trucks but expect OEM like maintenance free use. It just doesn't work out that way.

Just stumbled on this thread and figured I'd chime in. Leaf springs always ship bare with a shipping label stuck on them.

Whether from Giant Motorsports, direct from Deaver, or from Rock Auto, every leaf pack I've ordered has come bare. They're designed to take abuse and a little knocking around during shipping isn't going to hurt anything.

But they could get scuffed, or even worse, scratched!

Lol I'd hate to have the springs detract from the marks all over the rest of my truck.

You obviously missed the point of my post. The point is that for a $100 + in shipping they could of wrapped the MF'ers in something...but you obviously missed that. If you don't have anything constructive to add then keep your smart ass comments to yourself.
