Guess not if mine doesn't. Anyways its a good idea and good luck. I wouldn't want to do all the work and it lean since I had to fix mine. Any of the ST leaf guys have this problem or is it just the ranger leaf pack?

Ive never noticed any significant amount of lean, but Im sure it varies with the amount of gas i have in my tank.

Went to the Junkyard today and got my springs. $24.86 for both of them with tax. Gonna toss them on tomorrow and see how they work before I add any extra leafs. Got an autox meet so I'll be able to see how they handle with the car and trailer.

I saw the strangest thing there too. It was on a ranger. It was a single wide composite leaf spring. Just one. Looked like it was fiberglass or something. It was thick and had some taper in and out. I've never seen anything like that before. I would guess it was like an 87 Ranger 2wd. Anyone heard of that?

Ok so got the springs on and OHMYGAWD they ride so nice!

I didn't make my own spring pack yet, I'm going to see how these ones will work with towing the trailer and everything before I try and make my own pack for them. But so far they ride great, and they gave me about a 2 inch lift in the rear AFTER I removed my 2 inch lift block. My stock springs were starting to W.

I'm going to make a write-up, how-to and have pictures and everything in there, I'll link it to this thread once I get it done.
