    Has anyone added an add-a-leaf the 52" spring pack when they put them up front? Would this stiffen them up to much? I plan on driving on the street with this set up and heard that they arent street friendly but thought the add-a-leaf would help? What do you guys think? Thanks for the help.

    Im still in the process of rebuilding my packs, but Im going to use a stock 52 pack plus one extra leaf from another stock 52 pack. We'll see how it goes, I want 5-6" of lift total but the pack cant be too thick or my tie-rod-behind-the-diff steering arms wont work...

    I just finished messing w/ my 52's tonight. I started out w/ a stock 4 leaf + overload + zero rate. I didn't have enough tie-rod clearance with my reversed tie rod, so I had some thinner zero rates built, removed the factory overload and replaced it with a short leaf out of a set of Skyjacker springs. Just got it all back together and I can now slide my hand between the tierod and spring, so I hope that is enough clearance.

    I have no idea how it drives because I haven't finished getting the rest of the truck put together yet!:crazy:
