    Default 89 v1500 converting to 3/4 ton leafs

    I am currently trying to replace the 1/2 ton rear leafs with 3/4 ton leafs. But I didn't know if I could just use u-bolts for the made for the 3/4 ton leafs or if I would have to order special bolts.

    Welcome to the club as I see it's your first post!

    Go to a spring shop, with your truck before you start, they will make you new U bolts cheap!

    Why just the spring upgrade?

    Thanks for the advice. I plan on doing more but it is in desperate need of leafs right now.
