    ok fellas. So here's a little question and such.

    My goal was to wait till summer harvest was over till i started modding my suspension. But with the amount i haul bikes, camp, and soon to be RTT with rack on my truck; my leafs are 100% done. Negative arch unloaded and im just off the bump stops with 2 bikes and gear in the bed. So, question is what would you get for rear leafs? I have blocks in the rear and like the height its at. I need a set of leafs that will not sag with a little load, and also not give me to much rear rake when unloaded.

    I thought hunting down a TSB leaf pack and add a AAL, but not to sure if that would keep me at the height im at. With my revtek spacer lift, im also nervous if I get a dakar leaf pack thats 3'' my rake is going to be just... :eek:

    Also, as always cheap is good for now. Im still not 100% my goals with the suspension and truck after summer. SO throw out some advice and convince me to spend a few hundo to solve my little issue.

    downside of the expos is when not carrying a load is the rake... But, the expos could be one less thing i need to buy with what I may end up doing.

    I refuse wheelers leaf pack for now. $500 for them is steep for a possible change in suspension later on. So OZ ... no

    i was looking at the dakars from OME (# CS047R) but, only about 2'' of lift. So im tryng to debate if i ditch the blocks and get those will I sit at the height i am, or will +- rake be to much? damn all this work lol

    Well my toytec shocks up front lasted a good and rough five years... Just washed the truck and they are leaking really bad. They ride fine but fuck... Debating on changing out the 5100 inside it or just upgrading. Money is tight right meow...

    Leaking from the top lock plate also. Weird.

    If your gonna change out the 5100 change the sprig too for the weight...which means its time to just change everything out.....make the call and let's get the final plan rolling

    I was hoping to cut down on potential traffic by going towards canyon on 217 if not taking Murray.

    HWY 217 = Traffic of hell
    Canyon = Traffic
    Farmington = Traffic
    Murray = Traffic

    You may consider taking the back roads of Hall and hit up Allen or Farmington and then onto Murray.

    Hall tends to get backed up around the Scholls area as well during certain times.
