    Anybody got some played out AALs with no lift left in them on the cheap? Want another leaf but don't want lift.

    Regardless, adding leafs will give you lift. Just the added thickness of the leaf will give you at least a little lift.

    What are you trying to accomplish with this? Adding worn out leafs won't give you any benefit.

    Just wanting to shore up the 3 leaf pack on the reg cab to rid the cornering washout feel and reduce the possibility of wheel hop if not being all super precise taking off from stop without spending the coin for timbrens or ride rites. I fully expect the thickness of the leaf lift, just don't want 1.5 or 2". I guess if someone had some 4 leaf packs they replaced with something else that had settled would be best but they'd want 200.00. This isn't really any big deal like it was in the AC but does annoy me on occassion.

    Maybe just a better overload leaf instead of the one that is on the 3 leaf pack? Not sure what that would come off of but I'm sure someone has played around with this before.

    I see what you're trying to do. I'd try Doug's method and maybe find another 3-leaf pack to tear apart and insert into yours or find a TSB pack that's got some use to it and do the same to make a more built up leaf pack.

    I would not recommend finding a thicker overload because it'll make the truck ride like a dump truck. The overload is just a 1/2" thick piece of steel and does not have much flex to it.

    Also, Wheelers has a less expensive alternative to the Timbrens. I think they're called Superbumps maybe?

    Yeah, saw that thread. This isn't a big enough problem for an official project to take place...........yet. Trying real hard to not do 5100s and another 1.5 AAL setup like on the 05 AC. That was perfect for my dd prerunner needs but then I'd want to lift again and that would lead to LR UCAs again and.........lol. Trying to make due with TRD Bilsteins and just make the rear bit more tolerable on the 08 RC

    I would think the replacement of one chevy leaf would accomplish what you need, no lift, and firm up the rear. as long as you want to take off the old pack this isnt much more of a step. In any case, ask Doug, he will help you accomplish what you want and he may have old spring packs for you.
