    Hey guys, got a question. I am getting some new leafs in the not so distant future. I was going to go with some wheeler leafs, but I have found some leafs at northwestern offroad for about half the money. Has anybody used these? If so, how are they working out?

    I'm looking to do the same thing. I've heard good & bad things with Wheelers. One thing I've read is cheap leaf springs that don't last, (but that's just what I've read). I did order shocks with them not too long ago & they seemed to be helpful but messed up my order sending me the wrong shocks, & then they didn't send me the right bushings, so......:confused:

    I bought Alcan's and Bilstein shocks, I like the combo but would have saved money if I'd just bought the full OldManEmu kit from Wheelers. From what I learned when I was looking for info, the Northwestern springs are very heavy duty and pretty harsh for normal loads, but get them if you are going to tow a lot or have a lot of weight in the back on a regular basis.
