Looking for Lift Leaf Springs

My 99 f-150 rig has a 6" Fabtech with blocks in the rear for lift and they suck.I can't give it much throttle before the dreaded axle wrap happens, so I want to swap my wore out stock leafs with a set of lift leafs.I was looking at BDS 5 1/2" lift leafs, or Skyjacker 5" lift leafs.Anyone know of a canadian supplier?Maybe other brands or shops that can fab them up?

You might want to look at a set of Deaver springs http://www.deaverspring.com/products/leafsfd.html

Man, those Deavers are like $800....and I'm guessing thats not CDN cash, plus shipping......Can any spring shop build me a set?Would I need to ship them a set of leafs?Or can they do it all and send me the finished product?What type of cost?Thanks for the input,guys.

If you can find a local spring shop, they will take yours apart and rearch/add leaves to get it to sit as you want. Much better solution and cheaper too!

How far of a drive it it is to the closest Major town for you

You mat want to make some calls to trailer shops, and tell them that you broke a leaf and would like to get that replaced who do they use?

Sorry I couldn't help much on this, maybe some Winnipeg guys will see this and they may be able to help you

True their not cheap but they are a quality spring and made in the USA not Japan or India, Why not Give Scott or Jeff @ Deaver springs a call to find out more ( these guys' know their chit), if you plan on keeping your truck a while these may be a worth while investment, I run these along with Bilstien 5100 series shocks and love them the ride is incredible with no disappointment's either......

if you look on Deavers site there is a couple Canadian distributors as well

The nearest local spring shop is about 7 hrs drive from me, but I will certainly follow up on these leads.I think the Deavers might be too pricey for me right now.Gotta replace my bathtub etc. right away, but my goal is to keep this rig for a long time, so the Deaver set might be in my future.
