Deaver vs Atlas Springs???

So I was about to pull the trigger on a set of Deaver springs for the rear of my truck, to try to bring it up to par with the 4.0 coilovers and bump stops I'm running on the front.........well that was till I got the latest issue of Diesel Power and it has me wondering about Atlas Springs, as that seems to be the spring of choice of all these Dodge boys....... anyone know anything about Atlas springs vs Deavers???

The first truck in those pics is running Carli/Dealer leafs and the others are running Thuren/Atlas leafs.

Carli has been using Deaver for years and they have been very happy with them. They are a bit pricy compared to others but worth it in the long run.

Atlas builds leafs for manufacturers like Thuren and Pure Performance as well as direct to consumer.

As George said, Parker is the first picture and he's running our King 3.5" shocks all around with long travel leaf springs and chromoly shackle. Most of the trucks in that video are running our Deaver springs as Thuren actually refers his customers to buy our rear springs.

The only Ford 08+ leafs that Carli sells are the ones designed to work with their 4.5" kit. These are designed to level a truck running one of their kits which are usually closer to 5" while eliminating the factory block. Depending on if your Fabtech kit has sagged and/or how much rake you want these would work great and at worse case you could add a stock 2" F250 block. They run $1195 plus freight. Freight is around $150-$250 depending on where the pallet is going.
