    just looking for some input form hopefully real world experiences.

    i recently owned a set of wheelers 5 leaf and it sat very level paired with the bilstein 5100/ebiach combo in the front.

    2 things i didn't like about my wheelers 5 leaf

    1 was only after a month of use the overload spring was pointing in a different direction than the rest of the leaf prings? IDK why. but they performed great.

    2. paired them with a set of 5125 from toytec and they could travel more than the 5125.. (the 5125 would reach full extension before the leaf pack was at full droop)


    i am in need of another set of leaf springs and it is between another set of wheelers 5 leaf or the allpro.

    anyone have experience with the allpro setup and 5125's? does the allpro leaf pack get to full droop before the 5125 is full extended?

    want to find a setup that will match eachother and not be bad for the shock

    any help or input is greatly appreciated

    I don't have personal experience with these two leaf packs, but I have a couple observations:

    1) the overload leaf is normally (or maybe always) pointed in the other direction (aka the main leaves are concave up and the overload is concave down) and this is completely normal

    2) More travel is good!! Why not get longer travel 5125's? They come in a number of different lengths of travel.
