Custom arched springs

Hey, just wondering if anyone else has gone the cheap way and found a guy to build him a set or custom arched springs like I did? Just wondering if you think that the quality of these springs compares to the quality of the brand name ones. The guy who did mine sure knew his springs, and I think that getting the springs done this way is the only way to go!

It costed me 220$ for the rear 3" lift with an extra leaf, and it will be $200 bucks for the front; all hardware included and he gave me a set of 4" lift racnho shocks for the front.

So $440(canadian) bucks compared to the other cheapest deal was the Rough Country kit at 49$(us) plus shipping which would have turned out to about $900 canadian.

I would recomend this path to anyone looking for the cheapest way to properly lift their truck.

Re: Custom arched springs

I was always told the arching wouldn't hold for long it would sag back. SOunds like a good deal though. Let us know how they hold up.
