Sure beats the expensive springs. Well in excess of $200 for the taller springs.

Don't forget longer springs.

Those look just like mine except I did the 1.5 spacer. I did mine and it was fairly easy just drop the axel as far as you can. I unbolted the brake calipers and you will need a really good pry bar to compress the sping some to get them in there! Some say to also un bolt the track bar, but I did not.

A few hours and few drinks and with a friend it is pretty easy!

I have 2 sets just like that. One on my 97 1/2 ton and one on my Cummins. As stated above, they are pretty easy to install, especially if you have spring compressors, and enhance the stance of the truck. Good buy in my opinion.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...
