I would be more than a little annoyed the shop let me drive away with a spring half mounted. SHould be easy enough to reseat but shouldn't have happened. As for the 5.13's, I have 3.73's and have plenty of power, but its flat here in NJ :-)

Went back to the shop today and they fixed it without question. I didnít have to wait and the owner himself crawled under to re-position the spring. For now on, all employees are to check the rear coils on all vehicles as theyíre being let down from the lift. The spring didnít drop a huge amount but enough none the less. He even ordered the TeraFlex 1/2" Rear Guide & Spacers for me at his cost and is going to install them at no charge. Now thatís great customer service. Iím actually glad it happened. Better to find out here in town rather then out in the trail.

Good to hear. Order the spring retainers for the bottom from Teraflex or Poly Performance and that'll have the bottom covered. They're easy to install.

Well, it is TX, so much like NV. Highways are 70mph, so usually running closer to 75mph. There are some highways with 80mph speed limits. I have not been on any of those since the re-gear. I was on those once when I had 4.10's, and every hill was a huge struggle- could not hold speed on any uphill. Hopefully the 5.13's will handle it better, but I have no idea when I'll actually have the opportunity to go there again.

Sounds like the shop owner is a stand up guy, good deal.
