Urgent! Carli Full Rear Leafs; Please Help

Hey guys,

I'm in the process of installing a Carli Pintop 4.5" kit with full rear leafs on my 2012 F250. Unfortunately, it seems that I didn't receive any instructions for the rear suspension installation. At the moment I'm in a bit of a bind because I need to have the truck back together and running by tomorrow morning, and being a Sunday afternoon Carli and all of their dealers are closed. Can anyone here on the forum post a picture of how the full rear leafs are installed?? On the 2011+ F250's (from the factory) the U-bolts face nut down and there is a bracket on top of the leaf springs and below the axle. In the case of the Carli full leafs, it does not appear the the bracket on the top of the leaf spring (between the U of the Bolt and the upper face of the leaf) can be reused. Does the U of the U-bolts just sit directly on the leaf spring?

Thanks in advance,
Craig

Sorry I can't help much, hopefully someone can shed some light. But I would say try putting it back together as it is stock.

Use the top bracket, the new U bolts also face down. The center hole on the bracket needs to be drilled a little bigger to fit the Deaver centering pin and nut.
