I've had Patrick's monoleafs on my GMC for a couple of years. They drop the
rear of the truck about two to three inches . Also the ride is better, not
as bone-jarring. I'm sure the load capacity is reduced some, but I've hauled
500-lb engines in the bed with no problem.
I also considered monoleafs for the front. Cost was the determining factor -
I decided to go IFS - but some users have reported a rather bouncy ride.
Also, lowering the front without changing the steering geometery did not
seem like a good idea (see bump steer post from Wally). They will get the
front end down though, if that's what you're looking for.
