    I have the typical sagging rear end due to the towing that I do. What are the options for adding about an inch until I can afford a REAL lift??

    You should get your springs re-arched. That will pick the a$$ right back up. Or you could buy those 2" blocks that are being sold in the sale section. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    One quick simple solution, ORD Zero rate leaves. Rearching will work but it is not permanent.

    Plastic surgery is expensive, but can take years of sag from your rear. For a short term quick fix, you could try control top pantyhose or the handyman's friend, duct tape.

    I used some old overlaod leaves I had lying around. Put them in right under the rest of the pack. Needed longer center bolts though. For about an inch with a firmer ride, put them in as usual, but for less, like maybe 3/4" flip them upside down and you'll keep your ride good
