Homemade Mini-Spring Pack Leveling Kit

Hey guys. Had this idea after hearing so many people bad-mouth the use of the mini-spring packs on ebay. But there's not much to these, and if some of them aren't even made of spring steel (if someone could explain the difference to me, I'd really appreciate it), what's stopping me from throwing some plates together drilling a hole through them, and slapping them under my spring? So I'm looking for reasons and answers to the following questions.

Is there any support added to the existing leafs by going with some official DR pack as opposed to an ebay spring pack? Do the ebay types (plate steel from what I've heard) have any arch to them at all? If not, and I could fab some up on my own, what thickness steel do they utilize? Thanks in advance. And to please all the professionals out there, the $100 saved from building them myself would be put towards an adjustable track bar. Looking forward to the info in the professionally done VS. home made spring pack debate that is to come.

i run maxx lift as well. the owner i believe is from Louisiana and is super nice. my payment didnt go through paypal as it should have which was my fault. he felt bad and sent me a free t-shirt. free tailgate emblem, and overnight shipped and i didnt ask him to. he just said " Hey since this was wats wrong ill do this for you" i said sweet and i was on my way. i will defineatly go with them again
yes you can take a leaf out of the pack. you can add as many or as little as they give you. and no i did not get an adjustable track bar. but. i do want one. with my truck up its almost an inch off. i had to ratchet strap the axle over in order to do it.
