lift springs

I know that add a leafs make the ride stiffer and they tend to sag. I'm pretty sure thats what my truck has on it right now. My question is when you get a lift kit does it include the whole spring pack or just a few springs that are more arched like an add a leaf? I have a 2.5" lift and its sagging plus it rides really bad but i'm not as concerned with that because after all, it is a truck and a rough ride is expected.

Re: lift springs

some lift kits usually only come with front springs. Lift systems are more complete and usually feature 4 new spring packs. The most common way (cheapest) to lift the rear is with blocks or add-a-leaves or both depending on the condition of your stock springs.
