? for the Lifted Guys running Spring Packs in the rear

Any of you out there running spring packs in the back instead of blocks and if so which one and how do they ride. I am fixing to replace mine and go with either Deaver 8" or Atlas Soft Ride 8" spring packs and would like to hear your pros and cons. Money isnt an issue, I just want the best ride.

You might get a little better ride but you will lose towing capacity so you might want to think about air bags at the same time.

I had 8 Inch Deavers on my F350 and really cant say they rode any better or worse than stock

Just got off the phone with Scott at Deaver. Great guy. Told me everything I wanted and needed to hear and will be ordering their springs today. Just a heads up to you guys, they do not stock 08-2010 F-250 and 350 spring packs but made to order which is about 3 weeks. Cant say enough about Scott though. Also if you have a lifted truck and are thinking about replacing your blocks, make sure when you call him you have the total height of your blocks including the factory block when you call.
