    I had em installed last year at 4 wheel parts (was new to everything taco related at the time) Definitely regret going there.. but I won’t get into that.


    Anyways, I’m was about to add some EL46XL leafs to my current set, but for some reason I’m thinking something just doesn’t look quite right on my EL095Rs. It has been riding a bit harsher the last few months as well..


    I’m having someone take a look at this on Monday, but any feedback here would be great.

    Your spring retainers look like they were for a 10 leaf pack and the only thing holding them together is the u bolts. I don’t think it looks bad though.

    Are you talking just about the way they ride, or the fact that they look more 's' shaped than 'u' shaped? My el96's looked like that as soon as I rode around the block on them. And they always rode harsh. I figured this was all normal based on other reviews on here.

    looks normal to me. What’s your setup look like? if your not carrying weight especially with an extra leaf they will be very stiff. with the extra leaf they only felt plush when I had a ton of weight or when I added the swingout/315 and other crap.

    I don't think they look okay but OME says their springs are okay when shaped like an S.
    Pretty sure it's a design flaw/wrong metallurgy, but they refuse to own up to it. I have 15+ trucks w/aftermarket rear lift springs & have NEVER had a set that S shaped like thse particular OME.

    I have been tempted to flip the larger longer overload (2nd from the bottom) over so that it arches slightly up to support the spring pack a bit more... but meh thats alotta work.
