    Hello Forum,
    I was reading a thread titled "4 leaf springs". In there Pugga posted:

    "I had the TSB pack and it still crapped out on me so I bought a new 4-leaf pack and put the Icon 3-leaf AAL in there to further help the cause".

    I am currently running the Wheelers 3-leaf AAL with the 3 leaf OEM non-TSB leafs. He mentioned that the TSB springs crapped out so he bought a NEW 4-leaf pack to use with your 3-leaf AAL.

    I'm asking because I want to replace my OEM 3-leaf with a 4-leaf pack and then add my 3-leaf AAL to it like Pugga did but I haven't seen any other 4-leaf packs available other than the TSB's.

    The 90-297HD's are going for $199 each at General Springs & they said that there's is stronger than the TSB 4-leafs but I would like to read some reviews on them first.

    Also, if someone is running the 4-leaf pack with the 3-leaf AAL, would you mind measuring the truck height from the wheels center hub to the bottom of the fender?

    I was thinking of going with the OME Dakkars which cost the same but I have read that they are noisy.

    I am running 4 Billies with the fronts @ .85 (with 1/4" LF Toytec spacer) but if I can raise the rear up to an inch more then I'll set the fronts at 1.75. My current specs from center of hub to bottom of fender are:

    LF 21.50 RF 21.25
    LR 23.50 RR 23.25

    THANKS :)
