    So the squeak is from the 2nd /3rd to the uppermost leaf? the lower ones have these spacer/insolators already

    I think so. I am thinking of adding "pucks" to those springs that done have them at the same measurements as the ones that do. Anyone that has done this - any input?

    I did just that, kind of eyeballed where the factory ones were and copied that.


    They were $.50 a piece at the local spring shop, 13.50 seems steep

    I put some zip ties in the front as well yesterday and although things are much quieter, it's not totally silent. I'm going to loosen the main bolts that hold the leafs to the frame & hangers, bounce up and down on the rear bumper and retorque them.

    Going to be busting up my leaf packs to take
    Thanks for posting those up.
    Excellent. Did you give them measurements to go by or they used their expertise to know where to go?

    I left it up to them, I did ask a few things regarding the position of the isolators, and the need/no need to have each leaf drilled and so on , they reassured me that there would be no difference in spring rate and so on. I am a tiny bit concerned that the pads are kind of top of one another, but mostly because I wonder if it is going to raise the lift higher ('cause 1/4"=1/2"...). Also because the leaf that curls under the top spring no longer is in contact with the leaf all the way to the end.

    That said my OCD is definitely in overdrive lol , very likely over thinking, etc the guys at that spring shop know their stuff, the end result was the manager and the techs conclusion, and it's it's the goto place for dealerships and consumers such as myself for the whole region.
