No, not at all. The rear feels like the stock ride and the front is maybe a little bit stiffer.

De-Arch?

How did they do this? Change shackles, pull a leaf or with a blow torch?

If they use a torch, I'd be concerned about loss of heat-treatment and possible failure of the spring downstream. If they pull a leaf, then your load capacity is affected.

Perhaps someone makes a kit that is engineered to do it and still conserve load capacity. I know Ground Force has a kit in progress for release this fall and there may be others.

Tortured springs??? My gosh no!! :lol: :lol: :lol: The leafs were de-arched and shortened so shackle position stays the same. This was done at a reputable shop. You can't use shackles because it will hit the body.

You can use shakles, I know of at least 2 people at tt that used them. :D
Modified shackles will only go down safely 1 inch. You can go a little lower, but the bed will be riding on it. With my mod you can do up to 4 inches if you want with no compromises.

does the leaf spring company go the oposite way with the springs also, to get some lift from springs and not blocks? 20 bucks would be worth some lifted springs.

Yup, that's what they mostly do is lifted trucks. BTW, it was $200 not $20. www.nationalsprings.com
