I *have to* sort out the rear, as I can’t tow the trailer as it sits now. So that’s top priority. I guess I just need shocks to go with the new springs?
And for the front, I’d still like to duplicate the current lift, but improve ride quality and suspension travel. What do y’all suggest?
I'm 100% street. W/ ARE bedshell added in, I frequently haul 600-650 lbs in the bed. Installed HD leaf springs from generalspringskc.com, they're rated for 400lbs and I'll say they improved my overall ride quality when it comes to handling and speed bumps/etc...whether loaded or unloaded. These provided 1.5" of rear lift. I've since upgraded to Bilstein 5100s and set the adjustable fronts to 1.5" of lift. My ride quality is even more improved as a result. Win-win!! Ride is NOT jittery at all.
Bit of background:
I was told that airbags (installed at 12k miles on odo) would extend the life of my factory leaf springs, and this just was not the case for my work truck scenario. Rear leaves were 'W' shaped by 30k miles. I chose to retain the airbags w/ the HD leaf packs as they are a great add-on for leveling purposes.
My greatest fear was regretting these mods...and they both (HD leaf springs + Bilstein 5100s) made a quality difference in how my truck performs while providing a competent and planted ride at all speeds.
