What get's used for springs is going to depend on your vehicle weight. A lot of people start with F150 or F250 spring packs and then add or remove leafs to get the right spring rate.

Too many variables to say for sure.


FYI - I run custom Alcan springs with my 1/4 elliptical but I'll eventually swap in modified F250 packs when I rework things for new axles and wheelbase.

Axle wrap with 1/4 elip? Do you have pic? How many links are going to your axle? My setup has three link two track bars on the each side of the axle, in the middle is a v-shape track bar.There should be no axle wrap on a 1/4 elip setup. It will be done soon and I will post pic.:D
