Are they good? That depends on the goal. If you're looking to improve the ride, absolutely not. If you're looking for a little more lift, then yes, you'll get about 2".

Procomps suck though. Get a full length add-a-leaf if you get one.

They're designed to curve the stock spring to a slight curve to gain 2". I really doubt they'd do anything but maybe make a 4" pack stiffer.

Sure you can stack more than one. Dunno what you'd gain, but no reason you couldn't do it assuming your center pins and u-bolts are long enough. If you're SUA, it does mean less clearance under the pack though.

On an SUA setup, the thicker the pack (an add-a-leaf would add to the thickness) the less clearance between the ground and the bottom leaf.

Just about any 4x4 shop should be able to get the full length add-a-leaf for you. I'd recommend Rancho.

The center pins come with the add-a-leaf. Your current u-bolts might be long enough. But it's always a good idea to get new u-bolts since they stretch and commonly have torn up threads. You might not need new ones, but having them means you won't have to go find them if you need them half way into the job. Better to be looking at them, then for them.
