    Default Anybody Using Super Springs Add a Leafs?

    Hey guys,

    I recently purchased the Super Springs SSA5 kit for my truck. I have the Bilstein 5100 leveling shocks and rear shocks installed. I want to keep the truck level when I have a load instead of getting that prerunner look. Will these do the trick or will they raise me too much? If anybody is running this setup please let me know your feedback.

    I believe thats a overload spring with a 2,000lb. Maybe you should look into rear airbags so you can adjust the rear end when loaded.

    I got the Super Springs on my 05 1500 WT 2 wheel drive. They only work when the truck is under a load. It does not change the suspension under normal loads. The springs have roller shackles and only work under a load. I pull a 16' flatbed loaded with scaffold and boards, and it is a load. I am real satisfied with the springs and there is no sag under a load. Good product. I didn't put the airbags or boots? because the truck didn't need them.
