    So i thought i got a good deal letting the spring shop take care of my problem. they did fix the squeaking noise.... but now the leaf pack keeper is rubbing on my gas tank. I've been looking into purchasing a custom leaf pack something like deaver, alcans, AP, or watevers. been trying to do research but couldnt really find any reviews. haven't really found any product advertising that makes a leaf pack for a 6in lift either.

    so my point is this, what do you guys recommend to get this problem fixed?
    ideas, rants, jokes, pics, fling poo welcome.
    thanks in advance.

    the pics are of LR leaf spring rubbing on fuel tank. only happens during heavy flex.

    the last pic is of my new mod. on-board air/tire inflator and mile marker-marker

    that nut/bolt u see in the pic was facing inward when i first saw it rubbing. so i flipped it n shaved down the actual bolt head thinking it would clear the tank but i guess its still rubbing.

    Can you mount that thing a inch or so back, to align with the indentation of the gas tank. Can you flip it? Or just remove it and put on the toyota one if it would fit those springs:

    no can do. the guy rivited it on like the factory keepers. cant move it. im thinking maybe ill just cut it but im not sure if there is one towards the rear of the leaf pack. have to check. if worse comes to worse, ill just cut it for the time being.
