    So Archive doesn't actually make the springs, they just design them? Is that right? They look very nice. I like that they are meant to hold some serious weight. It looks like they have phased out their other design, the "overland" leaf pack. Shackleton must be named after the famous Arctic explorer.

    Serious leafs right there. Solidly build with the military wrap.

    What does one do about the lean that may happen per the manufacturers instructions?

    What type shackles you planning?

    I’d run the hammer hangers they sell. It’s supposed to be better than the shackle flip and give you more overall travel ( mainly droop travel) plus I’ve heard it smooths out any ride even on stock springs due to the rigidity of the hangars compared to the play in factory hangers.
    As far as lean they say to adjust front coil overs (if you have adjustable to help level the rear).

    I've been looking at these just not sure I'd have enough weight to justify. Contemplating these or just ordering directly through Deaver. Definitely feel that new leaf springs will be needed as my truck was used to haul loads and has almost 300k. Would love to see some feedback from someone else first...who's going to be the guinea pig?

    I have a set of deavers coming in for an extra 500lbs in the rear. I will test them with stock hangers then I’ll go from there and possibly order these hammer hangers from archive.

    Definitely curious about your feedback. I also need to get my OME suspension installed and see what the actual lift will be in the front as that will play a part into what I go with.

    If these are built for carrying 1,000 lbs I'm guessing the ride would be fairly harsh if the bed is empty?

    Do they make hammer hangers for Tundras? I've only seen them for Tacos and that won't work.

    I’m waiting for some feedback from members who recently installed General Springs Leafs. You can get an OE set for like $230 for Access Cabs with bushings pressed. I’ve heard good things prior. Someone here just put in a HD (heavy duty) set which costs a bit more.

    Having a hard time justifying $800 for another brand when General Springs at $230 plus another $200ish if HD will work.

    Not really apples to apples comparison. These are designed for a specific purpose. Since you're not into overlanding I would go with General or OEM.

    @lsaami do you like your general springs so far?

    So far, so good. They rusted VERY quickly however. like, within weeks. I'd recommend anyone getting them, paint or powder coat them before install.

    Yeah. It’s the Tacoma one first option. I emailed the owner.
    EDIT. Oops. That was a different part.
    He said these are coming in March -April for our tundras!

    Curious how that would fit. Tacoma leaf springs are under the frame but first gen are outside the frame. Doesn't seem like it would line up to me but would be cool to find out.

    Definitely much harsher and tighter. I don't notice so much anymore, but it a was a substantial difference at the time.

    To be clear, I got the standard springs, not the HD springs.

    The Deaver springs seem to rust easily also. Rheywood posted this last spring after only being on his truck 7 months(1 KC winter)

    You'd have to be diligent about keeping them sprayed with something.

    My suggestion on these springs (if brand new or old/rusted) is to soak/coat them in Ospho and then paint them.

    I'll be sure to update. Hoping the shipping happens on schedule, though it might be a hot minute before I get around to installing them.
