Though we like CST's different approach to the '99-'06 suspension using a tried-and-true upper A-arm drop bracket instead of a longer knuckle like most of the kits in last year's Runaround, we think there were two main reasons this truck rode so well: the Deaver leaf springs and the Fox Shox. The nine-leaf Deaver packs smoothed out the rear end of the truck very well, though there was now no overload leaf to speak of, so hauling super-heavy loads was out of the question. But in our eyes the upgrade would be worth it since so much of the "bounce" that trucks exhibit comes from a stiff and poorly working rear suspension.
