    Looking to everbody here for answers... I need both new shocks and new leafs but only can do one set at a time. My leaf springs dont have a negative arch they are pretty much flat. My concern if i go ahead and shell out for Billies for the four coners will they get screwed up in the next 4 mths. till get me some new leafs? This is a DD and i never go off road the only time its not on pavement is the 1/2 mile of gravel road to the house. Thanks for any advice

    I see your concern with the rear 5100 being put through hell while you wait to install new leafs...I'd probably just do the leafs 1st in your case

    If you get a new leaf pack won't the stock shocks not be able to extend as far as you need to? Why don't you just buy one or the other now, then install them when you are able to buy the other as well.

    O.K so i will buy one and wait and buy the other and put on at same time.. God it will be hard to have something waiting to put on my truck and not be able to! But patience is a vertue in this case. Thanks for the help.
