i have come across lots of info on rear leaf mods, but none for the front. my problem is that my 4" susp lift has over time changed to 3.5" on the pass side, and 2.5" on the driver side(apprx). i can tell by looking at the leafs that the one leaf pack is alot flater than the other. also, no broken leafs so what gives??
i would like to restore height back close to the original 4". is now a good time for a swap, or is rearching again the answer?
i also noticed i don't have any shims under the axle, should i look into these to tilt my pinion up a little?:confused:


:help

i bought the truck with the lift so don't exactly know what was done. far as i can tell the hangers and shackles are stock. i have also heard that there should be a spacer in the driver side. sounds like part of the problem but not an inch worth.
i need a little bit of 4x4101 here. are waggies a brand of aftermarket springs, why are they so common, and do you have to modify shackles and hangers?
the steel, shop, welder, and ******* juice is not a problem, but time is. will do these mods if it comes down to it, but a quicker solution would be looked at first.
maybe i am wrong here, but couldn't my sag on the one side be caused by failure(drooping ect.) of one spring within the pack?
would turfing the one spring and swaping in a different one solve my problems?
dropping the front hanger to tilt my pinion up makes sense. is there a % of length between the shackle and hanger that works and does not effect steering?

thanks for the awesome links

any info is greatly appreciated
