Think its time to get new Leaf Springs?

I have 195k and i was thinking that perhaps they have lost some bounce to them. Any suggestions on if i should change them up?

I would say you have gotten the most out of them. Mine had 131k and I am replacing with some lift springs. If you don't go off road much and want nicer ride and have the money the old man emu's springs are very nice. Or just get some stock replacements or maybe a small 2" lift.

I just did a shock/spring job myself. Every time I slowly rolled out of my drive way-my machine sounded like it was treading mud, "sloshy" sound. I would change them both at the first indication to take the pressure off the shock mounts on the frame. It is much easier to change a shock than to fabricate a shock mount.

Acquire enough Jacks to safely support the entire weight of the machine and start replacing-it's easy.

Good luck.

yeah i just ordered the stock ride height ones. I am not to fond of lifting, plus i drive like a maniac. Don't wanna flip it! I did however update my shackles to begin with, but still feels crappy.
