Multiple thin leaf springs will always ride better than one thick leaf addition. For this reason, I like the design of the Calmini and Deaver packs, though I have no personal experience with either. However, I have had first hand experience with both other types of add-a-leafs, ie, thick and thin. I had a Jeep YJ with a single thick add-a-leaf on all four corners for a lift... talk about a teeth-jarring ride. However, I also built a custom set of leafs on my Samurai with Jeep YJ springs, using a couple extra stock leaves from another pack... rode like a dream.

Another consideration... multiple thin leaves also flex better than one thick leaf. That's one reason Alcan utilizes so many leaves in a pack.

So, consider the design. Hope this helps. ~Steve

My AC AALs squeak. (yeah, I know MC, but no comments please)

I should have done more research. Maybe there will be a coil over conversion for the rear of the X one day. That would be super flexy.

Hey! I can dream!
