      Hey all. I ordered new leaf springs from a company called Michigan truck springs.
      They have 2 options on springs one @ $130.00
      And another @ $ 80.00 both have same dimensions other than the $80.00 lead having a 1.7” lower arc that the other but also has a load capacity of 1250lbs as opposed to the $130.00 one that has an 1100 lb load. I’m not to worried about the lower arc due to me already having warrior shackles in the back that lifts her ass up a lil any way. Any ways just thought I’d toss it up here for those who want/need new leafs but don’t want to get held up at the checkout line or gamble on a junk yard set.
      Shipping was 40 bux from Michigan to NY and I got them in 3 days. I’m putting them in this week so I’ll update.

      So did you get the lower arch or higher arch? And how does it compare to the stock springs?

      Did the new springs come with bushings? What about new bolts?
