Effective for lighter loads
This spring kit works for hauling around my quad. Not sure how a heavier load would do, but supports my stuff great. Took about a week to get the products. Happy with purchase.

Extra leaf fixed my problem
I think I overloaded my truck with green/wet firewood. Even when empty it was "down" in the back. After I added the new leaf my truck was "up" just a little bit. Can't feel any difference in the ride. Great product made right here in the USA.
