and antiwrap bar is a great addition. unfortunately, if you can build a good bar, building a triangulated 4 link isnt a ton more work. why not build a bastard pack using your existing main leaf. i cant remember where it went, but along with the drive shaft pdf i told you about, i also used to have a pdf with various spring lengths and rates for all types of applications.

pirate4x4 may be your best answer.
Walt, if you ever find that ds link let me know

I took my truck to a shop and they built and installed a badtard pack that levled it out and didn't wrap as much but kept the ride for $210 eroding my old main spring.
Could you get me a yoke to yoke measurement of your ds, and is yours still a slip yoke?

On the truck they are 52 inches eye to eye but they are bent. And what do you mean by "eroding"? Did they add any more leafs to the pack or just stiffer ones? I'm very interested, if they will work.
