Thick monoleaf would be the solution!..... Coming from someone who knows nothing about suspension.

Hotchkis does not have a leaf spring specifically for our trucks. But they do have them for the QC Hemi's which are pretty much the same as our trucks. So do they work on our trucks? Yes they do. I have them on mine and have no complaints.

Did you buy the full lowering kit or just the rear leafs?

Is it a single spring or a spring pack? and did it lower it? What are they worth?

I got the rear leaf pack from a warranty situation. I also have the front springs but they are not installed at this time. I went from a flip kit to the Hotchkis setup and I like the Hotchkis setup more. Better feedback and handling. Little stiffer than stock. Ride height was lowered a good amount with a slight rake. I will be installing the QA1's on all four corners this weekend. I might put in the Hotchkis front springs.

So will the Hotchkis kit work on our trucks? Read for details.

I will take pictures this weekend with the wheel off.
