    Just wondering how much flex you guys are getting on the stock leaf springs. Mine are sagging just slightly in the front and I am sure the back has sagged some in the 30 years as well.

    So far, I have never seemed to have an issue with offroading but since I am generally driving I dont know how much I am stuffing it.

    Does anyone have pictures of stock leafs all flexed up? The reason I am asking is I am putting a 3" body lift on and planning on putting on 35"s. I currently run 32s with NO rubbing. I will be replacing the body mounts too which could net me a little more lift too vs the old mashed up rubbers ones.

    Anyone have pic of 3" body lift with stock leafs and 35s? I would love to see what the result is gonna be. If not, I will be posting mine in a few weeks!
