Belltech Leaf Packs.

I have the 2-3 drop installed, has been on the truck since absolute new. No issues in front end except crappy camber numbers which is a given. The rear on the other hand has its issues.

Ive replaced the rear springs 2 times now, I just did the 3rd whole set as of today. Here is the problem: The lower 2 leafs keep breaking in each pack There are 3 total in the pack, I keep losing the lower 2 about every 2-3 years. I dont pack weight all the time, Winter time I use 150 or so pounds in the bed. I hit bump stops with the broken springs easily, ride height is about 1.5 Inches lower than was before. I cant come up with any other reason except poor materials. Im ASE cert in Chassis and suspension and this is weird. The truck is not heavy enough to break springs like this.

Anyone else had or having this issue with Belltechs springs??? Is the one of the reasons why they stopped producing the kits???
