I saw these chevy 1 tons, on like an early 90's 4wd. I didn't have a tape with but they were looong with 6 leafs plus O/L. I was wondering if you couldn't loose a couple leafs and get similar results to the 1/2 tons.

From what I have been told, all the packs are the same, 1/2T, 3/4T, and 1T. They just have more leafs added to beef the payload. So, yes they would work if you take out 2-3 leafs, plus overload. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

this is whatI'm using, they came from (I think) a 1 ton dually. I originally installed them with 3 leaves and a chopped off overload and then later added one leaf back in so I could haul more weight. I can't tell the difference between the two on the road or trail until I put a bunch of camping gear in the back and the 4 leaf setup doesn't sag nearly as bad.

the bobbed yellow truck I moved out of the way when you came by here saturday had a set of these set up as 3 leaf packs.

the 1-ton packs are better, you have options.

My chevys were originally a 4+overload setup. I pulled one leaf and swapped the second leaf for a rearched one of the same type. The leaves flex great right up to the overload. I think I need to chop the overload so that I can get some negative arch under flex.
