Yeah, not 100% on using addaleafs with front suspension, but can't see why not. Pretty much you add in a leaf and it arches your leaf pack more than they were giving a little lift and more towing capacity. They will firm up the ride some, but nothing bad.

All you have to do is put c-clamps on the leaf pack. And then cut out the center pin, add the new leaf in order so the leaves are largest to smallest. Add in your new center pin and that's pretty much it. There's more to it but that's the just of it.

You will have a rougher ride with add-a-leaf's.
