You have to use the blocks for the add a pack. The full spring pack are the progressive ones and do not use a block.

So does this "superduty bounce" go away with the LT Deaver springs???
I'm looking at the 4 1/2" springs.

The 2018 uses no block with the add-a-pack. We've have 2 shops with the same concern; one discovered a leveling puck under the factory coil bucket, the other removed the lowermost leaf spring from the factory pack. The stance was rectified when these issues were.

The Deavers will allow the axle to move more translating into less jounce making its way into the frame. That said, a lower spring rate is only that, it takes the rest of our system to control these springs.

All the suspension in the world won't fix a flexy-frame if that's your issue but i never had it on my 2006 or 2016 with my Carli Kits.

Pretty sure I now know where my problem is. The lowermost leaf springs are sitting in my backseat and not in the leaf pack but I still have the block installed. Looks like Iíll have them remove the block and add the lowermost leaf back in and Iíll be all set.

Appreciate the help.

When you say lowermost, are you referring to the overload (1" thick spring that doesn't follow the contour of the pack) or the lowermost leaf spring from the 4-leaf pack & the overload?

It would be the overload that they took out.

That would be correct, the overload is replaced with the add-a-pack. How many leaf springs are in your main pack, not including the add-a-pack?

Take some pictures and send them over to [email protected] so i can take a look; front and rear! Lower spring buckets from the front too, please!

Ok,
So just to be clear, you have the mini packs in the rear along with the factory 3" block? And they only removed the rear overload leaf and the truck is still taller in the front?

Double check the part numbers on the coils and take a pic of where the coils mount at the top and the bottom.

Mini packs and the stock block in the back. The bottom overload is removed. Truck is taller in the rear, not the front.
