Try here... :D:

His name is Sean....

For 300 bucks it is a very good deal and should kill some wheel hop also. A much softer rate will be had allowing you to stuff the tire more..... Not to mention a better ride... :D:

If you can make these springs for 40 bucks I will send you the cash asap!!! Serious!!! :roll:

The price of steel these days puts spring packs super high priced.. Look around guy... :bigthumb:

Exactly, but you can get them without having to spend 2K on the other stuff. KORE will NOT seperate any parts out of their kits anymore.. :D:

so that little 3 pack bolts through the existing leaf pack minus the thick overload? the center pin in them now is just to hold them together until they are installed.

thats is a darn good price. i paid 350ish for my deaver springs.granted mine are 11 leaf packs but 300 still sounds like a cheaper alternative. got any pics of the additional flex it will allow?


hmm now that i think about it more that does seem a bit steep for 3 leafs. even with the price of steel.i wouldnt expect them for 40 bucks like someone else said but 300 seems too much to be honest.

350 for a full pack is CHEAP these days so it was a while ago right? :D:

why not just take out the overload? Woudln't that be softer than adding another pack? granted you lose about 1" height.

Because you will have the worst axle wrap ever, the springs will bend in the center, and it's just wrong... :D:

A leaf spring pack, that has no huge-thick-flat overload, has to have a "upsidedown-pyramid" shape to it... It makes everything work right and kills a lot of axle wrap.. :D:

No doubt, don't pay with peanuts and buy a monkey when you can pay in cash and get a... track bar that still isn't that good?

yup... i realize they dont have the load capacity of what a full sized truck spring would be so that may be why they are so much cheaper. they have went up but not much

How much were yer' springs Drew? :D:

they are just 6" SJ springs.. i just removed the overload and since the little C clips that go around the leafs. i dont see how removing the overload is going to increase axle wrap at all. if you are thinking the way i think you are, the axle would have to wrap to the point that the overload made contact and that is where you are saying it stops axle wrap. well, my axle would have had to wrap at least 20degrees before my overloads would have made contact so im pretty sure im not hurting anything by removing them
