Carli progressive add a pack leafs. Anyone run them?

I have a lifted 2013 f250 and was thinking about buying a set. I was wondering if anyone has tried them and are they worth the money. Thanks

Yes,
I ran them on my 08 F350 and I'll be putting some in the back of my '11 F250 pretty soon. They will give you about 2-3" of lift so in your case you can run a shorter block. It will soften the rear up a bit and do a better job of controlling wheel hop as well. Obviously shock/wheel/tire choice will also play a big role in the overall ride but the mini packs will help. Depending on your budget you may even want to look at the full leafs. With your truck you could run those with a stock F250 block for your height and they even softer than the mini packs. We do however suggest Bilstein 5160's or better when running them as you can quickly overwhelm more basic shocks like the 5100's

100% agree with George's statement. He ran the 2008 and I ran the 2005 version. I noticed a bit softer ride, less axle wrap, less wheel hop and increased travel. It left a bit to be desire off-road but performed very well for being an alteration to stock springs.

Only thing to add is that the 2011+ packs are more of a mid-pack that an add-a-pack. Take a look at it on our website and notice the sheer size difference (and price difference) between it and the others. It does a much better job than the previous years but, at a few hundred less than the full springs, I would strongly recommend looking into the full spring replacement if ride quality is what you're after.
