Hey all!! I have a 2000 4x4 4.0L with a broken rear leaf spring. I'm looking for options to replace the pair & wanted something a little heavier duty with it, as I haul quite a bit with the truck. I've seen others posting something about chevy springs & Explorer springs to give a little more load handling ability. My spring code on the door sticker is BK. I would like direct fit replacement without modifying spring hangers, etc. Any help would be appreciated.
I got these Heavy Duty leafs (43-781HD from ATS). They're much stronger than stock (4 leafs, not 2). They nicely lifted the rear a bit, and don't sag even when truck bed is heavily loaded beyond the roof with firewood. So happy!
Expo leaf swap, with a bronco II sway bar. In the DIY section. Direct fit, decently priced upgrades that produce good results. Hit up your nearest junk yard. My total cost was $50 excl. time, gas, ect.
