    how many leaf\'s in the spring pack

    How many leaf's are in the front spring pack on a Tuff Country 6" EZ ride springs? I have 4 in mine just figured there would be more to make it softer compared to my rear 2" springs (6 leafs including overload) which are really soft. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    4 is standard for the TCI 6". There's a lot that goes in to figuring springs rates and actual installed rates. The of leaves is just one of them. Typically when you put in more thin leaves you get more travel for a give spring rate but you can get some of the same effect with fewer leaves if they're good steel, tapered, shot peened, etc. Basically you just have to make them handle the stress.
