When installing new leaf springs, the spring and shackle bushings should be replaced as well as the shocks, U-bolts, and brake lines. In most cases a dropped pitman arm should also be installed on a lift of 4 inches or more. A spring pack made from high-quality steel uses a higher count of thinner leaves. Teflon inserts and tapered leaf ends will offer a superior ride over a cheap set of springs.
