    i am looking to FINALLY replace my worn out 2-leaf pack that is on my truck, i have been looking at alcan, deaver, OME Dakar's, All-pro, and a few others and was wondering what people on this forum had, and their experiences with them

    im looking for about the same, or more in payload capacity, and good ride quality if i can get that as well... i have bilstein 5100's in the front and back... if that helps...

    im also not looking for 3 inches of lift... maybe 1 or 2 at most...

    thanks

    all pro hit or miss. deaver and alcan too expensive. ome is a great product and reasonably priced. met with chris 4x4 and told him i was looking into a allpro 3" leaf pack, he said go with the ome. i never believe until i try. i go to school at asu poly in mesa and thursday last week i walked up to a guy with a tacoma, asked him about mods and we got to talking. turns out he had the ome's and told him i was curious how they rode, he took me out back we got a empty lot with hills a dirt and all and i loved the way they rode. seemed very sturdy no noises were made and very giving on landings!

    if you want something that can handle a load (ie you tow or haul a lotta shit) then the OME Dakars are what you want...if you read the full specs and info for all the others they say stuff like "These springs are NOT designed for weight carring capability. They are designed for ride quality and flex." and this "]Due to removal of the factory overload spring there may be a slight decrease in gross max weight handling capability over the stock leaf packs"
    and this "Due to removal of the factory overload spring there will be a decrease in gross max weight handling capability over the stock leaf packs. "
    thats from the specs of the All-Pros, Alcans, and Deavers...

    and the OME's say this "Two-stage Leaf Pack: Featured on most rear springs for optimum comfort. When unladen the vehicle is largely riding on the primary stage, with the secondary stage providing additional support when a heavy load is added."

    plus they are like 400 bucks...which is 200 bucks cheaper than the others!!!

    What is the load rating for the TSB set compared to the junk set the factory gives us?

    Kings, AP 3" leaf pack, timbrens front and rear, TC UCA's, pro comp 7189's, baja ATZ's, CBI sliders and rear, relentless front, dynomax catback
    remove the third from the top leaf on them. I believe it's in the instructions and if you call OME that's what they'll tell you. Supposedly it would drop you down to about 2.25'' of lift. There's a few threads on this on TN.com (I can't view this site from gov computer at work) you can look over there if you want
