also, be sure to get those things that go in between each leaf, or use graphite paint so that they dont squeak.
Thank you

As for the leafs I just going to replace them with another rebuilt spring that has had an extra leaf added and run a second main leaf, hopefully it will work.

Can't totally recall.
I don't think that will work with the 99 and ups.
