    Welcome, to keep them from sagging (kindve). You need the tsb. Take it to a dealer and complain that you have a harsh ride when you have something loaded in your bed. They will fix the issue, the shocks might make your ride smoother but will not help your leafs. I am assuming your leafs sag.

    That is correct, with the LEER cap on top them leaf springs are horizontal and every time I go over a bump it bottoms out.
    So what I need is a new set of leaf springs anyone out there has some insight of what I should look on buying ????
    Thanks

    The TSB from the dealer first. If that doesnt work then you could try load level air bags... or add-a-leafs. A full custom set from deaver would be great, but also expensive

    wat?
    not sure about the TSB procedures in Peru, but if you are under warranty, the TSB would be the way to go. if that's not the case, you should look into a higher weight capacity spring, ie Alcan/Dakar. if you want lift with the higher capacity, check out the allpro expos.
