 Re: reset rear springs
What exactly does 'reset' mean? It looks like the truck sits lower, so travel is reduce. Is the spring rate increased to compensate for this?

It looks mighty nice.

RESET: Basicly you take out the springs alter the height, then retemper (heat treat) the spring. You can't do this job in the shed. It must be done by a springmaker (Like Me!). It is a fairly compcated process needing some specialist machinery. During all of this you can have the rates changed by having leaves removed, extras put in, thicker leaves made, rebound leaves fitted. Resetting isn't as simple as people think. You can acheive some good results by having a talk to a springmaker.
