Enhance your vehicle's ride quality and suspension life with the hardened toughness of all-American steel leaf springs. Skyjacker Softride Leaf Springs use only the toughest components in a reduced-friction design for the smoothest possible ride and maximum weight capacity.
Skyjacker enhances the toughness of their Softride Leaf Springs by using a shot-peening process on the steel leafs. Not only do they retain the strength of steel, but Softride Leaf Springs are then incredibly flexible-making for excellent ride quality in lifted trucks and SUVs.
Beyond strength and flexibility, Skyjacker Softride Leaf Springs boost performance by reducing friction. Improving on stock clip design, these leafs are held together by bolt-style clips that cradle, adding flexibility and stopping leafs from digging into each other. And, each leaf is tapered for extra flex at the ends. Best yet, your Skyjacker Softride Leaf Springs carry a Lifetime Warranty.

im not exactly sure why these leaf springs were painted black. seems like a waste to paint something black and ship them out of box with only a tag attached. i received them very scratched and chipped up. i haven't put them on yet because i have to locate the necessary hardware. they may ride very nicely but i wish i was the one who got to scratch them up, also i have no idea if these are even SKYJACKER brand there is no marking or box or even sticker!

The springs do not fit. My shackle now inverts and nobody knows why. Auto anything wasn't very helpful just told me to call skyjacker direct. Springs are way to stiff with no flex. Please look around! Now I have springs that sit in the garage and can not be refunded cause they were installed and have 2 miles on them. Price is cheap ya but spend the extra and buy a different brand. Bolt on doesn't mean bolt on here. I replaced 4" block with the 4-6" spring. It sits up 3" more then the front

When I over-loaded my truck I ended up ruining my leaf springs, I looked all over the internet and found the sky-jackers, I am very pleased with the ease of installation and the looks, my truck is now back mup to the height it should have been, I would recommend these to anyone who wants to replaced their tired old leaf springs..

The springs arrived in 4 days and took only 20 minutes to set in place, since I have the entire truck disassembled for mock up of all frame/suspension related components before powder coating. Great service and pricing, especially if you watch for specials.

AutoAnything had best price. As for the Skyjacker Softride Lifting Leaf Springs... very nice. I removed the 4" blocks and OEM leaf springs from my truck and installed the Skyjackers. The ways to lift a pickup truck rear end are: 1) Lifting Leaf springs (more expensive), blocks + longer u-bolts (cheaper), longer shackles (cheapest). For best ride and driveability, go with the Lifting Leaf Springs. Installation was an easy, one person job.

I'm still trying to decide how I really feel about the spring. They are a better ride than the stock spring with blocks, but I feel they allow more sway. They were a pain to install due to the brain dead engineer who designed the bolt pattern. Pretty much had to take the whole truck apart to get the old spring out. Not to mention a torch to get the old shackles off. I would suggest a kit with the spring when ordering with all new bolts and shackles if needed.
