Rear Suspension Help!
Alright, i've been wanting to level my truck for a while now but something occurred to me this weekend. Towing my dad's boat with some extra camping gear in the bed made the truck look really sagged. I was just going to buy 5100's all around, and set the front at 1.75" to level it out, then put on some 265/75's. If the truck already looks sagged without the leveling, it's gonna look even worse afterwards.
Do Add-A-Leafs give you better load capacity? I don't want to add more than 1" in the rear, and also want to retain decent off-roading ability. I was told Hellwig's and other overload springs can bend your stock leaf pack while off-roading.
With 1.75" of lift in the front, at most I want to lift the rear 1". With hopes of the truck sitting level, or just slightly nose high while hauling a load.
I would generally want a bigger lift, but i don't have the budget to throw in a diff-drop, upper control arms, and stuff like that. Just shocks/coils/leafs will have to do it for me.
