    Bah. You guys. Just add leaves from one pack to the other. No problems. Build your own packs.
    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.

    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
