For those of you who found that your truck’s rear suspension is not capable of handling your daily load, and lifting applications. There is a great cheap way of increasing payload. It will add some height, so make sure you talk with your local shop about the need for a new shock; or, do some searching and find an answer or at least an idea of what you need.
Here is a quick guide of how to install an add-a-leaf. I recommend purchasing a repair manual (Chilton) from your local auto supply shop for your make and year to help removing original suspension; or with a little of research figure out how to remove yours online.
Beware this procedure is DANGEROUS! Can cause serious injury if not done CAUTION! I take no responsibility for any damage that may come to you, helper/s, bystanders, yours or other’s vehicles.
