your thoughts on spring packs
« on: January 07, 2013, 11:59:53 AM »
I'm getting ready to lift my X and I was just seeing what you guys think of these( Old Man Emu CS061R Dakar Rear Leaf Springs.) with PRG adjustable shackles. I'm looking for about 2.5 to 3 inches of lift all the way around. As always I know you guys will steer me in the right direction.

As usual I think it boils down to what you want to spend. Never heard anything negative about the OME packs, and for the price it seems like a great deal. Alcans I think are the obvious "best" choice, but the price is almost double that of the OME kit.

The OME have a good history of being a quality product, but if they are not at the lift you are looking for adding a shackle to adjust isn't the "best" option.  I have an AAL and shackle and it works great, but everyone will tell you, it isn't the "best" option, and the stock leafs may some day break. 

Keep in mind that though Alcans often come up in discussion on the forums, they are not the only ones who make custom spring packs.  There are some companies that do it locally,  although they aren't sponsors so I can't remember their names.  Fangers got some custom rear spring packs done locally, give him a shout.

I had my done at Dunbar springs in phoenix. They re-arch them and added a leaf to the pack. Now i don't have to run a after market shackles.

Nice thing is that they will work with on the height. Plus at the same time they will ask you to fill your gas tank and put all your gear in the truck so they understand the load you will  be putting on them.

i hope this helps

x2 on Dunbar Spring - if you want to go local.  They will customize whatever you can dream up.

Alcans are also a good choice.  I don't have any experience with OME, so I can't comment.

I was quoted $680 from Alcan for a 5" full replacement leaf pack. Just got off the phone with Dunbar and they quoted me $450 for a re-arch and add a left, they told me I'd probably get 3"-4" out of it. I asked what the cost of another add a leaf and said it would be another $150. So $600 if I get the re-arch and 2 add a leafs. $450-$600 with my original leafs and adds, or $680 for a brand new pack with 1"-2" more of a lift...

Re-arch doesn't last in my opinion.
