I have some questions about getting/installing Dakar leaf springs I'm hoping you may be able to help me with! So, I have an '05 DCSB that I need to replace the factory leafs (they're basically an inverted U), and I've heard lots of good things about the Dakar springs - so those are what I want to install.
First question - if I install them, are they going to raise my truck a bunch? I have a front leveling kit in (so as it sits right now, it's level) - will the springs make me sit front end low?
Next question - if I replace the factory leafs, will I need to replace the rear shocks? Will the new leaf springs over-extend the shocks?
Also, this is my shopping list for what I need. Do I have everything? Is there anything on the list I don't need?
Dakar Leaf Springs
Axle Shims Do I need these?
Driveshaft Bearing Drop Kit Do I need this?
Thank you for your input and advice!
