Can you run your leaf springs without the anti friction pads? Pro and Cons
YES you can run without em , the factory front doesnt have any . im running diesel factory leaves on top of a couple tahoe leaves with the pads and it works fine might squeak or wear a tad more but i wouldnt worry about it .
why would you want to run without anti friction stuff in there? I use UHMWPE in my rear springs... and will in the front too as soon as I get a shop to open up the clamps. Pics of the UHMWPE are up on my webshots... shack flip install album. Reducing friction between the leaves is a good thing... keeps wear on the springs down, and keeps them from binding. Whats more, compared to new springs, its dirt cheap.
My Procomp springs didn't come with them,and nether the stock ones. My new BDS springs did though. I can't wait till I get those bad mama jama's on /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
