a friend of mine used to have them on his truck with a 2/3 drop on the zq8. They scraped a bit i think but after awhile they got grinded down a good bit that they didnt scrape.

I have the ZQ-8 and have installed Belltech 3" leafs with Caltracs. I don't really have any trouble with them scraping. Just can't go to the automatic car wash!

What did you do to the leaves? I know they cant be very stock, look more like lowering springs to me? How is your truck so low?

My truck has a 2" drop front and rear with SSM lift bars and I have no problems. You shouldn't use traction bars that don't put the snubber underneath the spring eye or you could bend the springs.
