    My 2008 leaf springs suck ass and if I have to grease them again I may lose my mind. I'm thinking of getting the heavy duty NWOR springs. I really don't do too much off roading and I'd like a little more load capacity. I hear that these springs bring the rear up about 3 inches apposed to the claimed .75 inches. Two questions: Will I need new shocks or any have any interference issues? Also, I'm looking for a simple reliable method of leveling out the front end...if it is in fact a 3 inch lift in the rear? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    You will need new shocks all around. A adjustable front would be the best to level the truck after! :cool:

    Yeah North West Off Road. Are they any good? If they don't squeak I'll be happy. Any suggestion on shocks? I've never had adjustables. How much range do they have? Any CV issues with springs or shocks?

    I haven't had any first hand experience with their products but was checking out their site when I was considering the lift for my truck .

    5150s for the rear if your going with 3 inches. How much is that leaf pack your looking into?

    Other posts said they gave about 3" of lift and cost around $700 with shipping. I talked to Alcan too and they can build some for around the same price but they don't recommend extra load capacity. The extra load cap is important to me over ride quality.

    You could go with the OME Dakars , they provide 2 3/4" of lift or 3 1/2" with their OME add a leaf
