    Just score Toytec AALS for now & save for the others....mine were about that bad even tho I haven't been playing airplane with my truck, lol, and the AALs made it much better! Or suppose you could just get helper spring if no lift needed even cheaper.

    I did the Toytec AAL but now it seems to be losing it's arch. What's the advantage to the Deaver 10 pack? Does it give you lift like adding a leaf? Does it help with sagging in the rear when carrying a load? Will it hold it's shape over a longer period of time? Just wondering...

    its possible....give a lil lift and free wouldnt be bad. if u were gonna buy something, i'd just get a complete pack. depending on if u are wanting flex or weight capacity/stiffness would depend on who u want to get it from

    haha...i know...but i've never heard a complaint or even a "they can do it better" about the leafs. they are a 10 pack too...good flex as long as u have the shocks to take it. they dont like weight though. i've got will to make me a 1/2" block to go on my drivers side to offset the tank weight

    no idea about the capacity loss, but someone else said that they said that every 400lbs=1" of droop or something like that
