Re: sagging springs

You need to address the root cause of the sag. Though leaf pack can settle right after being installed, springs do not “sag” from repeated flexing within their designed range. So if they sag, they are being flexed beyond their intended range.

How much weight do you carry while wheelin, do you have a spare on the back, have you extended you bumpstops to match the lift?

AAL’s will address the Root problem also be increasing the springs rate and thus helping to prevent over flexing them. Blocks on the other hand will do nothing but make everything worse.
