    jeez it's been awhile! How are your rigs everyone? I just got a Chevy luv sitting on a 79 3/4 ton Chevy frame with Dana 44 in front and corporate 14 in the rear. What leafs should I run to get most flex? The ones on it are stock right now

    longer the better...flatter the better...and the thinner each leaf is, the better...

    A good 7-10 thin leaf pack will ride better and flex better than 3-5 thick leaves.

    good point...shackles angled back over the springs, 45* seems to be about right for ride/flex balance

    I have Waggoner leafs front and rear about the same as 63" Chevy leafs. Rides really smooth and flexes really nicely.
