    I am in the market for new reaf leaf springs. Advance auto parts carriers this line. Is there anyone here that runs them? If so, what do you think of them? Thanks for any info anybody can give.

    I just took the 2.5" Pro-comp springs off my truck. They were really too stiff for my likes.

    I run 4" Procomp springs up front and their block in the back and I hate them. It is only a 4" lift and they are so much stiffer than stock. I say go with another brand.

    i run their 6" springs up front with their 2" helper spring 4" block in the rear and i really like them. my mechanic swears that it's got 8" of lift because it sits taller than his 8" lifted chevy. i have a diesel though so that might be why i don't experience as much stiffness as these other guys are. just my two cents. happy hunting.

    i agree, i run the 6 inch front spring, ord shackle flip and 3 inch 56 rear springs all by pro comp and love them, again, i also have a diesel, but it doesnt weigh much more than a 350. abviously it all boils down to personal pref. when it comes to ride quality, but i think it rides great with the mx6 shocks i ordered that are off of a superduty (length).

    I have the 4 inch springs bought in a package deal , and contrary to popular belief , they ride nice . But then again I shave against the grain and never see the doctor either . It isn't a caddy , it rides fine :D

    My Tuff County springs DEFINITELY ride better than stock springs. Of course the truck had the heavy duty front springs, but the lift springs ride smoother, yes, smoother than stock.

    Have procomps in our crew cab with a BBC and it is stiff as hell. I have BDS in my K5 and it is perfect.
