    Bought these springs from ATLAS SPRINGS up in L.A. awhile back for 5" of lift but they actually give 6 maybe 6.5. thought they would settle down, ran some concrete in the back for a few weeks, been on more than a few camping trips with the bed loaded with gear and they did settle just not enough for me. even with my 5" tuff country lift I have my coilovers showing 2 inches of thread just to be level. Willing to sell for $400(price of new allpro 3" expedition leafs) or trade for a comparable setup of around 3-5 inches.

    After install

    Grey wire and keyless entry. I like stock.
    If I were you, I'd put the overloads back on the springs and take the (starting from the first arched spring after overloads) second and third springs out. They are what gives the spring the crazy arch it has and they'll drop the height of the rear out. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks WCP my next option is to go about modifying the current pack just wanted to see if there was any interest out there for someone who wants more lift or carriers more weight.
