    so i was woundering if anybody knew of a softer rear leaf pack for out taco's that arent lift springs, i just got done doing my shackel flip to maintain stock ride height and love it but was wanting a softer spring now, but not the stock non tsb ones, was hoping for something like the deavers with more and thinner leaves ? but no lift, thanks

    Deaver makes any kind of leaf you want, and they will out-soften the stocks easily.

    If you want to retain stock hight and plusher ride, they'll make you a pack for that if you specify that.

    they run about $600 but they are the best by far.

    heres a great write on them
