Just call summit, they will be glad to find out the information.

Add a leafs are going to make your truck ride stiffer, and how much they lift depends on the condition of the springs. They also tend to settle after a while. But at $50, that is a pretty good deal. Good thing you didn't go with 33's, eh James?
You might also get a set for the rear, and keep the truck level.

The "longer" ones will hold up longer. The kit will come with 2 add-a-leafs. Not sure if they provide new centering pins for the leafs or not. I would guess not.

Most of them come with new centering pins. The 3 sets I have installed in different springs have all come with them. If they don't for whatever reason do not reuse the old centering pins.

well the truck sets low in the front. Kinda like the new one do. M truck rides stiff now But im gonna put a good set of ranchos on it also. Im think that the adda aleafs in the fornt will level it out. If I put them on all four corners I will still be low in the front and high in the back. THey do come with new centering pins. Is this a hard install? Do I have to completely remove the leaf spring pack. or can i just loosen every thing up and slide the ne leaf in and bolt her back up? I need pointers Becuase this will be my first suspension work.

It isn't anything hard, it just takes time. There is a little bit more to it and just loostening everything up and sliding them in. You can leave the spring bolted to the frame, but the axles will have to be unbolted completly from the springs because. You will also need new u bolts and such because the old ones won't be long enough, and you just should replace em anyways.
