I tried searching, didn't find anything. I'm just wondering if anybody has tried their springs. I want a 6" spring and the price is good but I can't find any reviews.

Perhaps you meant CustomsuspenSion.com?

Have literally never heard of them...

If you're looking for 6" lift in the rear...most likely you're going to need blocks. I'm currently running All-Pro Expedition springs and those are running 4"-5" unloaded and are STIFF!

I'm running the BDS 6" lift. Which gives you 4" blocks in the rear which levels the truck out. All good except when I'm carrying my gear then I'm sagging in the back. I'd really like to get away from blocks all together with a 6" spring. This is the only place that has them that I can find but nobody seems to have ever heard of them. It's a Canadian company.

I can't say I've ever heard of them, I wouldn't personally run a suspension component from a company no ones heard of, so unless someone chimes in, ehhhhhh. Not to say they might be legit...but then again you might get a super arched spring that'll give you 6" of lift for about a month and then sag like crazy.
I would say you could get away with All Pro Expos and a 1" block and probably be level. Those expo's can handle some serious weight. You'll definitely get at least 4" of lift in the rear, if not almost 5"....I would say try those and if you want a little more lift, a little block won't hurt as much as a giant 4" block lol

True. That might be the way to go if nobody chimes in. Or just add a leaf, I have a custom traction bar already so wrap isn't an issue, I'm just not a fan of blocks lol

Add A leaf is merely a bandaid for a sagging leaf pack. And you're not gonna pull 4" with an add a leaf lol.

I meant on top of the 4" blocks I have now, so it doesn't sag when loaded.

If you go for the AP expo pack you won't need the 4" blocks.


That custom pack thing looks like its gonna be SUPER stiff. That thing looks super arched and has ALOT of leafs...oh my

Yeah with the AP if any block would be needed it'd only be a 1". Still would rather avoid blocks.

I would just get the AP expo pack and see how you like it. You'll maintain at least 4" with several hundred lbs in the back. I think i was pulling a good 5" unloaded as soon as I installed with no weight in the bed.

Well I ordered the 6" ones from custom suspension. I'll update here and there and let you guys know what I think. Now I just need to figure out what shims to get. 4° or 6°?

^For future reference, you can also get 6" lift springs from Alcan. They make springs to-order at any spec you want.

That being said, update this thread with your impressions once your new springs are in.
