Super Springs

Has anyone ever installed these springs onto their trucks?

I've already installed an extra leaf spring and it helped, but not enough.... I have a car trailer for my mustang and also use a 14' trailer usually loaded with firewood etc.....

Or........ Should I be looking at a set of airbags?

I know this is an old post, but looking for same info.

Has ANYONE on here used the superSprings ? http://www.supersprings.com/superspr...ew_general.asp

I'm looking at getting a travel trailer and want something to keep the back end from sagging. I have a leveling kit in the truck and the headlights barely touch the road as is ... with a trailer and ANY sag my headlights would be pointed at the stars. So I need something to keep it somewhat ballanced (or even to raise the back end so that when trailer attached its level)

I was also looking at the sumo springs ( http://www.supersprings.com/sumosprings_overview.asp) or just adding an extra leaf spring.

Or combination of the 3.

I have no idea what would be best ... suggestions ?

Chiming in here Im also looking at some sort of travel trailer here so perhaps some beefier springs might be an option.

i haven't used any of these.
but i considered something like
http://www.airliftcompany.com/shop/59568/

run the 2 lines to a place near the license plate with a couple of tire fittings. (no onboard air compressor needed) use a basic tire gauge to measure them.

It doesn't increase the load capacity, but levels the vehicle.
Nothing will increase the load capacity.

Interesting. Similar to the SumoSprings.

I am leaning towards SuperSprings as they indicate can add upto 1" to the rear of truck, which would with the leveling kit's issue of the headlights being aimed too high. Maybe I'll be the guinea pig and just give em a try.

You will still need to reaim the lights regardless.

You will still get sag when your towing. The air bags will level you back out.

I find with the way my hitch is set up I can level the truck and trailer fine. Where the problem comes in is when I hit a dip in the road the unit wants to porpoise up and down. We have some pretty bad roads out here due to our drastic temperature changes throughout the year causing frost heaves. Using my air bags I can get rid of most porpoising and have much more control. The nice thing is after putting the trailer away just lower the air in the bags and get your ride back.

Such is life. Just passing through.
