My pack is stiffer (added 2 leafs) but it's still pretty soft, especially at speed, over speed bumps it's stiff, but I can haul down a wash-board dirt road at 30 MPH and it's my front suspension that's lacking.

My stock suspension would break loose at about 25 MPH, and you'd have to put it in 4x4 for control.

I got 3 of mine from Doug (you need 4 for 2 leaf packs), they're just plate steel that's cut into little rectangle (approximately 2.5''x4'')l with some all-thread with a nut welded on one end to tie it together.

Doug can do just about anything with the leafs (up to 4'' of lift) as long as the main leaf isn't bent (not likely with the age and how they look)

There was nothing really wrong with it, except that it's a lot easier to make them out of bar than a piece of plate.

It's easier to make one cut than two or three.

So that's why they're so professional looking.
You definitely did the welding on the 2 cut pieces of all-thread though.

Pulling them out of a jet or burn tank would be the way to go, but I don't have one of those in the shop.

I do have some bar stock, though.
