Maybe their leafs are better. The names in Cummins community are Carli and Thuren. ProComp is never recommended. Last post for me here. I hope the Procomp servers the OP well.

On a side note, your contributions are much appreciated. If I ever need help, I hope I can reach out to you in the future.
Carli uses Deaver springs, they are $1000 for a pair.

Of course they are a better spring, they are a custom made race spring, We used Deaver springs on our truck all 3 times we won the Baja 1000. Guess how long a Deaver race spring last ? 1 Baja 1000 or maybe 5 shorter races, they sag just like every other spring ever made including Stock fords and Pro Comps.

Carli builds some great stuff but what I think his real skill is in his shock tunning.

A good read for anybody building an Ex suspension even if you are not ready to drop $7k at Carli.

His Excursion suspension system is second to none, I have spend a little time in my buddies Carli built Ex down in Baja and it works great.

Anytime you have a question for me please feel free to hit me up.
