New "Alcan" leaf packs installed today

I have an 08 reg cab with an A.R.E. cap the stance of the truck was lower in the back after adding the truck cap. Its been driving me crazy and forget towing a boat the truck would sit very low in the back and look silly . I called toytec and they recommended "Alcan " add a leaf or custom leaf packs. I carry weight on a regular basis and tow boats occasionally so I opted for the custom leaf packs .I installed them today and man I love them they did exactly what I wanted it took the truck back to stock height with up to 500lbs in the bed .The truck rides the way it should now and hopefully I wont be hitting the bump stops all the time now on the beach . So far I am 100% satisfied with the new leaf packs and the way the truck rides with them ! Thanks to Alcan spring and toytec I now have the toyota that I always wanted with a decent suspension in the rear .

They were $650 shipped and took about three weeks to get. It took me about two hours to do the install .It was pretty simple. The hardest part is breaking the bolts loose, you will need a big breaker bar, a good air gun ,and a couple of jacks to raise and lower the truck and the axle .I would think if you contact Alcan directly (888) 321-0870 they would probably be cheaper than 650 Toytec simply drop shipped them and probably made 50 bucks or so off me .

Here is a link to the Alcan website.

http://www.alcanspring.com/

If you go to Alcan directly, you are looking at ~$500 (depending on your needs) for the set plus shipping. Alcan is located in Grand Junction, Colorado. They do offer free quotes and will make the springs specific to your needs (i.e. towing, offroading, etc.).

I don't own a set, but I've been seriously considering them.
