Question Need new leafs - suggestions?

The time has come to replace my rear leafs (they are breaking) and the fronts are pretty well done - truck rides like a submarine...

I'm looking for some tips from you guys as to what I should replace with. I'm thinking stock springs for rear, and some sort of soft ride leafs for the front. Skyjacker? RoughCountry? Need opinions!

Do you mean you're selling your springs?
