you'll want to keep checking them for a few times after you drive the truck too.you'll notice they'll take a few more turns after some miles going down the road.

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.

Did you have to take your springs to the spring shop to add the extra spring?

I'd keep checking the bolts until they stop loosening up...

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.
