    Do you install the add a leave between the overload and springpack or under the overload?

    This is going on my 86 K5 with stock rear 52" springs.

    some install in the middle of the spring pack somewhere, but most are between the main spring pack and the overload. No instructions provided? If you are talking about Zero-Rates, they go under the overload.

    I would put them under the main leaf to give it more suport and make it stronger I would think

    Never used an add a leaf... but I always build packs with the longest leaf on the top... and the smaller ones on the bottom. Just put them in order by size and bolt the pack together. Zero rates always go on the very bottom... I thought add-a-leafs always went on top of the overload but below everything else. :dunno:

    Well I just finished the install. I put the add a leaves between the overload and the spring pack. I worked out great and the K5 looks good.

    Now I just have to get my front springs in this week and I'll be done.
