Finally, the repaired pack compared to the new OME CS019R + D6XL pack that went on. FWIW I only sit about an inch higher with the 4 + 3 OME packs than with the fixed pack! But then again the fixed pack had those clamps around the overloads and everything that kept them from flexing much right in front of the spring perch. Also I lost about 1/2" since I also put on shorter shackles. I did not want much more height than I had before, taller & stiffer springs (OME rates them to 2.25" of lift carrying from 440 lbs to GVWR additional weight) with shorter shackles to rotate the pinion back down a little.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
