Custom Carli/Deaver rear leaf springs ?'s

Post by TwinStick » Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:38 pm

Are the ones made for the diesel stiffer, to support more weight than the ones for the Hemi ? The part #'s are different, so i am thinking there is some kind of difference. What is it ??? :cheers:

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

They're the same leafs. THey have 2 part numbers since the Hemi trucks use 3.5" u-bolts as opposed to the Diesel's 4" u-bolts.
