I have heard some guys say they have used it and liked it. I have not used it and will not get a chance to because I got my truck with 4" springs that I will be trading for 2.5".

Fwiw the "mini spring" design looks to me to be just a block that is wider to prevent axle wrap and pass safety inspection.

I would get a mini spring pack from a spring manufactor thats made from spring steel not plate steel. You will also need a adj track bar to recenter your axle after the lift. We have quality kits..

I'm with Cary on this one. Get a spring steel set, not plate. Yes, they cost a bit more.


These mini-packs are a great way to level the truck (similar to a block, but actually bolted to the existing leaves so they're in essence just a taller, multi-leaf spring pack but without the added spring rate).

I have installed one of these in a friend's 02 F350. Easy install with desired results.

I would get the set up that Cary sells. I will be doing the same thing once I get some other things paid for. There is a right way and a wrong way to level a SD. Most do it the cheap, and wrong way.

2000 Ford F-350 Super Duty Pickup Base/Standard Revtek Suspension Parts: Suspension Components

My truck has the 4" revtek springs up front and I wanted it lower so I ordered the 2.5" springs and I guess it was in the nick of time... Don't know if it was a closeout or what.
