I have em in front. Very stiff when new, felt like I was driving a pogo stick, sat pretty high also. Once I pulled a middle leaf, it changed completely, much smoother.

Been running them about a year, no problems, flexed good from the git-go and did not pull any leafs. I do have the 3.0 which is a bit heaver then a 22r, and a winch on the front.

I have the "reconstructed" chevy springs, they are 68" eye to eye. It does not use or require BLOCKS but it does come with a 1 over load but was removed from pack to lower the truck. The rear shackle mount was moved all the way b"ck to edge of the frame and yes I did box the frame for support.

here's the build thread.
