My leafs are shot. Most likely original (144k now). My passenger side sits about 1 3/4" lower than the drivers. I wouldn't mind a slight upgrade, but want ride quality first and foremost. This thing is not an off roader. I read several posts on leaf spring recommendations, but most were on lifting, etc.

Will going with HD leafs be better than the standards?

Also, anything else I should consider replacing in the rear while I'm at it?

Any thoughts welcomed.

Never seen that company before. But looks like a good stock replacement. I would not get the HD spring unless you carry a load regularly. You should replace the bushing. Seems like they come with new bushing. I would also replace the shocks "while you are at it".
It is also recommended that you replace the U bolts/nuts whenever you remove them. At $6 I would.

Please report back when you have finished this job.

Best part is that they are in my backyard and I can pick up local. Save $50 bones for other activities! I'll report back once I've pulled the trigger and then again on install.

Cool. Their website says they do custom work. Wonder if they would or how much they would charge to add a military wrap to the 2nd leaf, and maybe do 1-2" lift.
