    alright so i installed 5100's in the front and rear. fronts are set at 1.75". i have the reg cab with the crappy 3-leaf so i want to upgrade my rear leaf springs. i've looked on wheelers and came across the deaver 10-pack and alcan 8-pack.

    deavers: 1-1.5" lift
    alcan: 1.75-2"

    which springs should i go with to get the stock rake look?

    thanks

    heres a pic of my truck with 5100's 1.75" front and stock 3-leaf rear:

    If you want the stock rake , and you went up 1.75 in the front , wouldn't you want to go up the same in the back ( 1.75 ) ? With your canopy weight you could probably go up 2" in the rear and get the stock rake ,
