    Longer end goes to the rear for an Icon add a leaf.


    Grind off the Rivet on the leaf clamp on the overload leaf if keeping the overload in and if it interferes with the add a leaf lining up with it.

    Another way of figuring it out, is the military double wrapped end goes to the front. This is a safety feature, in the even that the main leaf breaks

    Here is a military double wrap (front)

    Here is a single wrap (rear)

    Ok guys everything went well and ended up with 1 3/4" front and 1 1/4" in the rear. I am keeping the stock UPCA's for now. I am taking it to the shop for alignment tomorrow and was wondering if using factory specs will be ok or do I want to ask for max caster ? I have no tire rubbing issues whatsoever even when trying minimal articulation. Running 265/70/17 WildPeaks. Thanks!

    Have them aim for 3-4 deg of caster. Slightly higher on the passenger side.
