Yeah i looked into the chevy leafs i have no issue fabricating, but to me chevy springs just sound like there gonna ride stiff. But i like the way these expo leafs sound. I think i might go with that and do a shackle and keep a block.

i only got like 2 inches of lift out of expo leaves when i had them. right now i have 6" blocks i made and f-150 leafs and shackles and its about the right height. the blocks are temporary but they lifted the back till i get new springs. right now my front rides nice but my back shocks suck so its kinda ruff in the back. and i need to do my allignment too cause i havent touched it since i put it together and just measured it really quick then. it kinda wonders right now but it drives pretty straight.

Yeah T5 thats what i got. Well i just got 5 and a half inch blocks in the rear. But i did my alignment myself at first to ad then had it done at the shop. What a hell of a difference let me tell you. Its definately something i would invest in.

where did you guys get u-bolts for blocks that big? I just bought the front components of an rcd lift. I have 2 inch AAL and 2 inch lift shackles and i think im going to go with a 3-4 inch bock to get the other 1-2 inches in the rear but i need new ubolts right?

I went to florida spring and axle and had them made. But you can go to any spring and axle shop and they will be able to make you some.
