i got everything back together yesterday. i went for about a mile drive yesterday and checked the nuts and they were a bit loose. how many times should i recheck the torque on them? kind of sucks having to take the tires off to check them.

i keep checking them about 10 times.once after about 20-30 mile trips for good measure.it's probably over kill,but it doesn't hurt to make sure lol.
i can simply reach around to check and snug up if needed.
i just added another aux spring to my packs.man i love it! just what she wanted.she stays up nice and pretty when hauling now.

Aah I see thanks for the pics. I just called the spring shop they quoted me $440 for the aux kit (brackets $40 per side, springs $180, and u bolts $10 each) is that a reasonable price? It is $270 to have my springs flexed and add a leaf maybe that is the route I will go.
