rear spring packs?

i am going to replace my add a leaf with a full pack soon. what leaf packs are good. i know that RE's are good but heard they are stiff. can someone tell me if they are stiffer than the add a leaf? i also noticed that RE has a 6 leaf pack which makes me think they will be stiff. some other companies have 4 leaf packs its just that the leaves are thicker. any info would be appreciated.
right now i am for the RE packs since they would match my super flex. i am sure RE designs their spring rates to work together.

where is a cheap place to get these. i got the lift from redrock4x4 and got a great price. not sure if they will give me as good of a deal on the springs though. i have to check.

I just put These on last weak. After I removed the over load leaf they gave me about 3 1/2 inches, with the overload leaf probably a little over 4.

I can't comment on how they flex though, because I haven't wheeled them yet. They do ride better than my old leaf packs with 80 K on em.' Just another option to ponder....

If you have the RE 3.5 AAL, I don't see any reason not to get the Full pack from re too. It'll sit a lil' higher, but I doubt the ride will be much stiffer, after they good and broke in.

Im running re 4.5" springs in the rear. have only had them on for about a month and they have softened up nicely. www.redrock4x4.com got then to me for 100 less than directly form RE. They give discounts on Re stuff to forum members.
