Suspension question.

Wondering if anyone else has encountered this. 72 k10 that I believe is stock height. Front springs are completely flat but sit about 1/16 above my steering stabilizer. Whenever I go over bumps it smacks it. How do I remedy without adding a big ole lift?

Thanks in advance

Re: Suspension question.

Put a 3rd factory leaf in it, it will raise it about 1-2''

Re: Suspension question.

You also need to check the spring eye bushings and shackle frame bushings. If your spring pack has only 2 leafs you can add the option 3 leaf. The stock spring are flat to neg arch but if there broken down than you can buy new stock spring or a 2" lift springs.

Measure from the bump stop to the top of the leaf spring top plate.
