    Not crappy, just stiff. I don't have to run bump stops or limiting straps because my Pro-Comp springs are so thick they do all the work themselves.

    If they're in there and you don't mind the ride, save yourself a lot of time and money and leave them alone.

    I had some too, and thought they were too stiff so I swapped them for superlift.

    If I were to apply this Pro Comp formula..........then it would be like a really 3rd rate stiff shock..........doesn't really perform.......very little performance there

    Huh? If you're saying what I think you're saying, they're stiff leaf springs, they hold the truck up therefore they perform, if he doesn't mind the ride, it's not worth swapping them out. I don't like the ride of mine, so I'll be removing them...or am I missing your point?

    Mine are awesome on pavement . They flex really well off pavement , considering I have the clamps in place . They just ride too stiff in dirt for older dudes who have ridden in my truck :D

    WAIT A MINUTE !!! WTF !!!???[​IMG] :D

    Just because i like the Cadillac ride now,,,,


    i have some Rough Country "EZ Rides" they road alot rougher than stock,( didn't expect them to be the same though) i just took out the second from the bottom leaf and it made a big improvement in the ride quality.

    Still rides firm, not squishy, but not as harsh when you hit smaller bumps or speed bumps and such.

    just an idea to maybe try out.
