    Hi folks!

    What options are out there for a good set of leaf packs that take care of taco lean and provide 1 1/2" - 2" of lift.

    I just got my truck back from the frame swap and my rear leaf springs are clearly not up to the task of carrying the weight of my Cap and added weight.

    I have 6112's up front set on the second setting from the bottom and my front end is sitting higher than the rear without the kayaks on top. As you can see I have a cap on the back. i know the front's will settle but the rears leaf springs are not going to get any better.

    I don't typically carry the kayaks but I do haul a Yeti 105 around with me where ever i go, sometimes full but mostly empty.

    Look at the frown of these leaf springs.

    Appreciate your help, I need to do this right the first time.

    No, but you could add something like this on the driver’s side if you wanted.

    You really need to do the front to get rid of the lean. A 1/4" top plate spacer will do the trick.

    I added the Wheeler's .5 inch shim on the driver rear ADL to level my truck in the rear. And it did so perfectly.

    I ran just a spacer, it solved the lean. Then I put in 885 coils and HD Dakar leaf packs with no spacer. At first there was no lean, but it returned in time. I now have a spacer on the driver side front again.

    They're all the same. Headstrong and Wheelers both sell them.

    Some.

    Some, still, are marked 0 or something. It’s a marking for specs, and they’re shipped randomly. Never assume you’ll get a + and a -

    a lot
    That's a quality spacer that nobody will ever see. I have their AAL too.

    The way they package a simple hunk of metal like they were eggs impressed me.
