    2 inch spacer in the front, and homemade add a leaf in the rear, billet grille, bull bar
    So I aquired a set of used leaf springs a couple of weeks ago to replace my sagging rear end. I install the new springs and my truck still wasn't level!!! So after a couple days of thinking and looking at my old springs BAM!!! use an old leaf as a ad leaf!! so i cut 2 inchs off each side of the last leaf and BAM custom add leaf! so I get some longer bolts and install them and I am very pleased with the final result my truck is level and i didn't have to pay 80 bucks for an add a leaf kit!! pics on the way

    Thats the way I have been doing it for years, I usually use a long soft leaf and put it mid pack, or on vehicles with long bottom leafs, I cut it longer than the overload, but shorter than the bottom leaf (non overload). It is even better when you can find a leaf the correct length that has the nylon anti friction pads.
