the whole leaf pack?

I would take the take the ulbolts and backing plate off, set it all back into place and bolt it back together. ideally you should get new ubolts but i've been running used ones for a year now no problems.

as for the squeaking that is common, just spray it all down with lubricant after you put it back together.

I did expo leafs from the JY. They give you 2 inches of lift so you can eliminate your stock block.
