    If your bump height changes then yeah. Are you gonna get new bumps too? If you get the archive bumps, I can tell you how tall they are and you can set your lower mounts accordingly.

    Yeah. I’ll just get the whole archive kit bumps and all. If you can tell me the height. I’ll talk to my guy. And order Eric’s kit and an extra set of lower mounts in case it all needs to be changed with the new kit

    They’re mega beefy. I used to have the wheelers flip kit and Eric’s is much nicer

    If you set the lower mounts as if the bump stops compress down to 1” tall measured off of the u bolt flip plate, you’ll be set. Idk how your guy will do it but I do it all with a tape measure and measure eye to eye from upper and lower mounts and how far it is from leafs to frame. So let’s say there’s 6” between bump stops and frame. Compressed length of shock is 20”. I’ll set the eyes 26” apart.

    The plate is thicker too, I’d just get the kit personally. I wanna say wheelers is 1/4” thick and the archive is like 3/8”. It’s overkill in the best way

    Nothings wrong per say, the archive kit is just nicer. Beefier u bolts, thicker plate, more bump options, powder coated black.


    I believe option 1 is just the u bolts and plate, aka no bumps at all.

    Could it be the center pin on the leaf pack is loose?

    i hear ya. The wheelers price was appealing to me and the ability to make whatever bumps i want work aided in the selection.

    i hear the archive kit is very nice

    The center pin does nothing for the leaf springs once they are on the truck. What you need to get is double check u-bolt torque and a set of these clamps. It looks like the deavers do not have the OL spring included in the clamps with their main pack, hence the reason for the shift.
