Front Suspension Rear Leaf Springs

Long-travel rear leaf springs are a great way to go for daily-driven desert trucks, since you don’t have to move the gas tank to install them. This pair of Deavers is a 10-leaf pack that provides a 1-inch lift. This truck could actually use more arch to gain more bump travel, so a pair of revised rear springs is also in the offing. The shackle brackets are from Boneyard Fabrication, and hold a pair of BBR shackles. Currently this rear suspension cycles 13 inches of travel, but that number could stretch quite a bit with minimal additional mods.
