I had a broken leaf in each of my rear springs on my 2000 Superduty. I bought new springs from Steling Bros out of Pennsylvania, the stockers had 4 leafs and 1 overload, these have 5 leafs and 1 overload. I'm happy with them so far. They seem stiffer than before (just by jumping on the bumper.....) we'll see how it does with a trailer on her. Raised the rear hitch almost 4" though :-) Now i just need a front leveling kit and i'm good to go. i've got a busted spring up there too.. Took about 2 hours. See below:

about 39" on the drivers side
