Please answer the following questions before adding to cart to help us provide you with customized for your specific vehicle.
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.

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.

They were a bear to install on my 2005 GMC crew cab but am totally satisfied with the end results. Wanted to remove the 4" lift block to eliminate the spring wind up. The spring actually gained about a 1/2" in height and got rid of the spring wind up problem
