    I just received a pair of leaf springs from Alcan. They are an 8 leaf configuration which should yield a 1.5" lift. The question I have is, do I need to install the overload from my stock non-TSB srings? The Alcans do not have an overload.

    Thanks.

    If you want/feel you need an overload you should call alcan and see

    Otherwise, it's not really needed. My expos don't have an overload
