Just wanted to thank you all for your input and advice. This weekend I was successful in replacing my old sagging leaf springs with new ones, along with new shocks all around. I replaced the old leaf springs with higher capacity leaf springs with just 1/2" of lift. I know that is not huge but I did gain 3 inches of height. My old leaves were that bad! I sprayed all bolts in question with PB blaster, and I did not have any bolts snap off or cause any real headaches. Total install was approx. 4.5 hours.

Thanks

Well done.

Out of curiosity, what was the source for the new springs, model or stock number if you have it, and how much did you pay? Other folks might need the same info.
