ProComp 22415 - add anti-wrap leaf?

Looking forward to installing the new rear springs, I'll be removing the factory block and installing the 22415s. Looking for thoughts on adding the OEM anti-wrap leaf to the ProComp pack... bad idea? Waste of time? Or will the higher-arched spring be more susceptable to wrap and benefit from the OEM leaf and snubbber?

How much do you use 4 low and heavy throttle ?
do you tow and leave from a dead stop at full throttle ?

If that isn’t your use then leaving it off is no biggie.

I was hoping you'd answer up!

4 low, more than occasionally but not under heavy throttle - more picking my way through rocks or deep ruts/washouts on inclines.

I don't tow much at all, and when I do, it isn't heavy loads and no wheelie attempts on launch.

I guess I have my answer - but I'll leave some room on the u-bolts in case I change my mind and need to make a showing at the Trailer Towing 1/8th mile Nationals.

I'll be curious to hear what you wind up with for u-bolts - I anticipate starting installation about this time next month, gotta get past Christmas presents for others before I spend more money on gifts for the Ex... a trackbar and brake hoses. Her side of the tree already has springs and shocks, wheels, a front parking camera, new belt and idler pulley...

I will confirm as to whether or not they are correct once installed

If you are not using the block with a taper in it make sure to leave room for a wedge to correct drive line angle.
They get bolted in with the springs center pin ( you may need a longer pin)
use 2 C clamps to hold the spring together when unbolting the pin and installing the wedge.

fwiw the 2* seems to be the one most commonly needed.

Pirate, If I am not planning on installing the slapper will the center pin be long enough?

depends on what center bolt they used, sometimes it is long enough sometimes there are no threads left and you need a longer one.

I ordered the 22415 and 22210 Pro Comps with the Bilstein 33185552 and 33185569 5125's. If I understood correctly I can eliminate the block and expect about 3 inches of lift which will clear my new wheels and 35's

be nice if they specified the length on those.

I like to use new plates

With no block you want 8 long 5/8 ubolts for a 3.5 diameter axle
