So what's the big deal with them? I can understand how they could be of use if you ever busted a leaf, but is that the only thing they're good for?
How is that different from any other spring? I guess how factory springs do it with the clamps, they have the wraps at the eyes, right?The Military wraps allow for more spring travel, meaning that the leaves have room to spread apart for articulation vertically, but at the same time, are kept from moving from side to side horizontally

Thank you steve, nothing like having a mistake rubbed in your face twice. What i was referring to is apparently called a "bolt-style alignment Clamp"Steve83 said:Plugly is right: the ONLY purpose/meaning of "military wrap" is the second layer of spring around the pivot bolt so the truck can limp home if the main leaf fractures.
It has nothing whatsoever to do with flex/articulation/travel. The alignment clamp (whatever style your pack has) is ONLY there to keep the leaves stacked correctly.
