    I've heard of them. Two guys here run them...one a Super Duty on 12" Atlas Springs, the other 14" springs on a 78 Suburban. Both are happy with them .
    The guy with the Super Duty was gonna go National, but they wanted $3300 for a set of four springs and a 3 month wait. Atlas charged him $1300 for the set of four and got them in a couple weeks/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    Oh yeah, and there is one other guy I talked to who runs them and said he is very pleased with them! Hope that helps.
    My buddy is supposed to call me with their phone number and I'll post it when I get it...

    I've also heard great things about Alcan Spring in Colorado (1-888-321-0870) and Deaver Spring is supposed to be good to (1-714-542-3703)

    Anyone else here anything good or bad about any of these companies??

    So Atlas builds custom springs or just the normal off the shelf packs?

    I just ordered my new rears from Alcan, custom made 9 leaf 63" rears with 4" lift built in. They are very very nice /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Good deal at 280 each too /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Deaver rocks. I talk to one of the shop guys every so often and I've learnt a lot about spring tech. The majority of their business comes from the dez crowd, but they have ventured off and have done some rock setups.

    Some of the things that I've heard about Deaver compared to "other" companies is that the springs are done a lot quicker and the customer service is "there," the spring packs are laster a lot longer than other "companies" and I have yet to hear a foul word about them.

    By the way, that white Dodge that I posted the pic not too long ago just slapped some Deaver springs in the rear and they are pulling 19" of travel now. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
