    Anyone have these rear spring packs? I'm interested in load carrying capability. I'd rather just get the TSB done but i'm out of warrenty and the Dakar leafs are much cheaper ($333 for the pair). So any input/suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    I have them and love them, they ride great, flex great, and increase the load carrying a whole bunch. They will lift the back end quite a bit. 2 1/2" at least. Great springs especially for the money.

    What kind of struts are you using with them? And what kind of set up do you have in the front?

    I have OME 885 in the front, OME shocks front and rear, cost me about $1200 for everything. I do need to get some new U-bolts tho, I reused the old ones because I'm going to flip them and need to get some new ones made up.

    I don't have a diff drop or axle shims, but I do have some vibes that were working out. It's looking like the tranny mount or something, when you start off the tranny shakes like a bastard.
