Just got a 2015 HD Duramax Crew Short Bed and I have been playing with the ProPride setup for our 30' Bunk and decided I needed the longer drop shank. I have the 1,400 pound bars as I previously used. How did you set yours up? Starting truck and trailer level and then raising the jack it drops the rear about 2-3 inches. Pulling the springs up I don't see the front end moving at all. It just appears to lift the back end back to the original height.
So are you starting lower so that when the bars are drawn up it leaves some compression on the rear? How much lower? How much drop at the rear when done?
I am keeping the ProPride mainly for the anti-sway and perhaps I really don't need to pull the springs up that much, maybe draw them up half way leaving an inch or so drop on the rear with the trailer level.
Thoughts? Thank you!
