Granted, new u-bolts are always nice and should be used, Old ones do work in a pinch. If long enough.
Add too many it'll ride like a 70's school bus.

How I don't miss those days, had a new 79 f250 that I lifted back then. Lol 14 leafs in each pack and who knows much arc was added.

Building spring packs is not hard, keeping the spring rate can be a challenge. Safety is a must when working with spring packs they can bite hard lol.

Not to add more carry capacity, but to carry the weight better if that makes sense. The added ground clearance would be helpful also. Trying to do it on the cheap, don't have money for helper springs or air bags. Also trying to make use of the stuff I already have on hand. Another question that I need an answer for, is there any way it lift the front of a 2wd ram, other than bigger tires. It's a sport and being in the woods gets a little hairy sometimes. I know I should have a 4x4, but I have to make do with what I have. Thanks for the responses.
get an add a leaf kit i got mine for my 1500 for 65 dollars shipped, it adds an extra leaf in your spring pack you can get them anywhere from 1.5 to 3 inch lift and they handle payload better with way less sag for the front get coil spacers i have 1.5 in in mine you can get up to 3 in
