    None yet but soon all black.
    I have a couple of questions. I have the OME heavy duty leaf pack on my truck now, 17 Tacoma. But they’re starting to sag after a year. I have a topper that is 200 pounds!! I’m debating on the stage two or stage three springs. Now I do do deliveries for work in my truck. So 2 to 3 times a week, I can put 500 pounds to 1100 pounds in the back of the bed but besides that it’s usually just my topper: and if I go camping, my camping supplies. I want a 3 inch leaf pack. Would the ride be really harsh with stage III with only my topper 200 lbs? I’m thinking stage III because like I said 2 to 3 times a week I can carry up to 1100 pounds but then again that’s only 2 to 3 times a week. The rest of the time I’m Empty. So stage 2 or 3? Thank you

    Deaver has been in business for over 100 years, they know springs. They are great people to work with and will build you anything you want. If you can tell them what you need, they can build it. They built a custom rear axle leaf pack for my Jeep. Great company.

    Rear through the entire thread but couldn’t find a clear answer. How much lift do the stage I deavers provide with no weight? I have 4inch lift spindle up front so I’m trying to get level. I currently have the Allpro standard Leaf pack and it’s giving me about ~2.25 inches of lift (not sure what stock height is for the rear)

    Stage II with no added weight will provide 2" lift over stock.

    You have to remember that there will be a difference of an inch between 3rd gen and 2nd gens.

    Oh yeah my mistake for not mentioning I have a 2nd gen. I see that both of you are 3rd gens. So it would be 3inches if lift for me?

    Yes. Also chances are that you will need shims to get your driveline angles correct. The shims will give you roughly another 1/2” lift.

    Deavers shouldn't require shims... they might, as every truck is different, but if you choose the proper stage for your loading, then it shouldn't be necessary.

    Also, 1/2" sounds pretty generous. Not sure I've seen 1° to 3° shims that thick.

    I never measured the shims but I would guess they are about 1/8”-1/4” thick. Which would translate to 1/4”-1/2” lift.

    Yes.
    the rear is 1:1, not 2:1 like the front.

    I have a question on your stage 3. I just received mine and I’m getting ready to install. Based on Deaver site, the stage 3 comes driver and passenger side specific. I don’t see any markings on which is which and both look and measure the same. I’m I missing something? Is there any way to tell which one is driver and which one is passenger? Thanks!

    Mine had two markings. A chalk stamp on the wrap end but the label on the top also indicated which side.

    I hope stage I's aren't side specific. I have a 50/50 chance, but I'm an unlucky bastard.

    I don't think they are. From what I've read in their site, only stage 3 is side specific.

    So I have a question. I have Deaver U402. How do I know which stage they are, other markings are D10045L29 and 63433. Any help would be appreciated.

    measure the thickness of the stack. It's been a little bit, but I believe the Stage I is 3.5" thick and the Stage II is 3.75" thick... At least it was for my two sets. They also should have a sticker on the top.

    Any questions as well Deaver is helpful. Also I would recommend anyone get your truck weighed so you get a real feel of what it weights. I have a shell, armor, swingout and all that and was thinking I was maybe 700 over but turns out truck weighs 7,000+ lbs. which is 1500+ over stock.
