Icon4 Rear Springs done for

What other truck rear leafs or i guess maybe front leaf springs? Can I use one my ranger?? I have a 8.8 with the chevy drop/lift shakle on the back of my truck??? The reason I am asking is cause my leafs are flat.

I got a set off of a Explorer, they had an extra pack in them verses the stock Ranger springs. Raised my rear end up about an inch or so. My Ranger ones didn't have any arch left!

well they should give you 2-3 inches of lift. if you ditch the blocks and run leaf springs you should be close to level. so not a bunch of rake when you remove the blocks. Bob has pics of his truck with the blocks and leafs.
