    I run the Mediums, 2" unless you run with the bed loaded alot heavy, 2.75" are too much and need bed weight or else the ride is going to be not as good. I run a 265/75r16 spare underneath and BA steel bumper in the rear and the ride is good on the Mediums.

    My HD Dakar + Overload leaf has not squeaked since March/April 2018. Per advise here from TW, I sprayed it with PLENTY of fluid films. Before that I had the factory leaf + AAL and it squeaked WAY WAY TOO MUCH even going slow on a mild speed bump/hump.

    Is this the thread to ask about converting from heavy duty to medium? recently bought my truck and it came with HD OME leafs. i desperately want to get rid of the stiff ride.. if i find medium is too soft in the future when fully loaded, ill go with air bags. until then, i dislike the "thunk!" going over every single speed bump. I have Bilsteins 5100's all the way around.

    You can remove a leaf from the HD 96r to make a Med 95r yes.

    i have medium dakar’s and they started squeaking after 4 months. i sprayed silicone lubricant in between every leaf and bushings. then jump up and down on the tailgate to work it in. That seems to get rid of the squeaks for a few months.
