Do you haul much weight with your truck? Are just your shocks bad, or the leaf packs too?

I will be when I am driving back to Arizona. Then the most I will have is a camper shell, wood for camping or a dirt bike so nothing out of the ordinary.

Well for the best ride and off-road performance. The Deaver packs are Great, but they do not have any overloads, and are also very soft so they don't handle weight too well. Some people get the timbrens to go along with them so that they don't have to worry about sagging too much when loaded up with stuff.

As far as shocks the 5100s are great. We can ship them to Alaska if you need.
