Leaf spring

Ordered a new leaf spring and they arrived. It has 6 leafs and decent amount of arc.






Shackle is on second hole


passenger side UCA bushing was shot and replaced it with poly one.


With the new pack she sits pretty level at ~4.75" like as before.



Installed them and little playing with my friend




New pack is little stiffer, but hope they will soften soon and not sag a lot. :D
