if you are talking about the brackets that clamp to the leaf spring and the cylinder mounts too, kiss those leafs goodbye, they are gonna snap in a short period of time.
they basically do the same thing to the leaf spring, as taking a paper clip and bending it until it snaps. TRUST ME, I tried to tell that to a guy 10 years ago, he didnt listen,

not to be an ass but 4x4 trucks with the same rear leaves as my truck and 300,000 miles, have not broke.The factory designed them... they dont break. Why would hydros add to the equation be any different.

Is it because people are putting alot of pressure on the mono leaves and straightening them out? is it from mounting the cylinders (the weight of the back of the truck) soley on the leafe springs? or is it from doing big side moves and trying to twist the leaves?

Just curious,but I'll tell you one thing though, I took out my side to side switches after I did mine on the monoleaves.

They break I have seen it happen 3 times.

you obviously didnt pay attention to what I said.


THE BRACKET THAT THE CYLINDER BOLTS TO IS WHAT CAUSES THE LEAFS TO BREAK. GO LOOK AT THE BRACKET HE POSTED A LINK TO, THAT BRACKET CAUSES UN-NATURAL STRESS ON THE LEAFS.



HYDRAULICS DONT BREAKS LEAF SPRINGS, I NEVER SAID THAT, I SAID THE BRACKET CAUSES THE LEAF SPRINGS TO BEND IN AN UN-NATURAL ANGLE.


I know your not being an ass, but I am being an ass because there is no need to post anything unless you have fully read and understood the statement you are quoting.
