Missed your new thread after the PM. Sorry.

For your application, I'd stick with basically the stock suspension.

If you feel you must change it, I would agree with OMT: Ditch the leafs and go to coils. Unless your sponsor is a leaf spring supplier, there's little justification in attempting to adapt ladders and such.

Wouldn't exceed 125 pounds per inch WHEEL rates.
