Leaf Spring Question

Was looking to do a mod to my rear leaf springs. I need a longer bolt that holds them all together though. since I am adding a leaf where can I get the bolt that goes in the middle of the spring that holds everything together? It has a knob on one end that fits into the block

Usually the add a leaf kit will come with a longer center pin to put it all together.

unfortunately it is not a kit. I am trying to do a B spring mod, but the b springs I got had already been modded and the center pin cut. Now I need to add in a leaf to get my truck sitting correctly.

It looks like i can buy the longer pins. Just needs to figure out the correct size and style

does anyone know if something like this is the right size?

If your springs all ready have the "B" mod then I would look into airbags. You can buy a kit for $300-$400. Air bags would ride better and be more practical than a add a leaf.

Any leaf spring or heavy duty truck shop can get you the bolts or you can order online.

just involves swapping some leaf springs and spacers around from the stock excursion springs into the B code springs.

I bought used springs and someone took the spacer out already and cut the pins/bolts

I still don't understand the B mod for the springs.
Excursion leafs mixed into the spring pack?
