    Wondering if ORD offers any springs that would raise the rear of my K5 up about 1", maybe even two? Don't want to use blocks, and would prefer to swap the whole spring, unless what I have heard about add a leafs being a pain to install is false. I'm going to jack the rear of the truck up to get a "guesstimate" of how much lift it will need to be level, are there different add a leaf heights available?

    We actually work with a spring company that builds some heavier rated, and/or taller springs, pretty much to order. Cost is a little more than a run of the mill aftermarket spring, but still not bad. Let me know if you want to try a set.
