    not really...Oak is heavy...and when loaded down folds the springs back alittle where the end of the AAL's are on the stock springs...if that makes sense

    I dont load up my truck too often. I have a 3" All Pro leaf pack but thats for better flex and offroading so Im not sure where to send you. But It might be a good idea to look into some bumpstops such as Timbrens.

    Hmm im not too sure. But they are not for carrying loads. Of course you can but they would sag a lot. Let some others chime in.

    From what I understand, the dakar leaf pack is supposed to be really good for sag issues. They'll give you 2.75'' of lift, which may or may not be for you. Not too many people on here have them, but I'm sure the ones that do will see this thread.

    now does a superspring work as well?

    well i'm not sure what to go with yet....
    either: Skyjacker...gives me a level ride 10% more payload
    EMU Dakar...7 pk...more payload...but what ride height? have to call on these...not sure if they are over or under axle?(called them)

    i don't want to and to my ones i have now...don't trust them

    i'm thinking Skyjacker with supersprings if possible...

    like i said before...i'm always hauling something...and mostly wood

    thanks for the Help

    First of all with 3 inches up front and 3 inches in the rear you will have a terrible rake. I have 5" up front and 3" in the rear to get my truck level. But whatever height you go with in the rear, contact Deaver suspension. They will build you a custom leaf pack to whatever specs you want. You can tell them how much lift, how much towing and hauling.
