Hi David,

Our 2007 2350 built on a 2007 E350, has the rear end sag when loaded up for a trip, primarily from the 42 gallons of water sitting directly above the rear bumper.  If you wouldn't mind elaborating, I'd like to know three influences from your Super Springs.  Your information would help me in determining if the Super Springs are right for us.

1) How much height was gained at the rear bumper?
Our rig when empty, cannot tolerate much additional height for the a/c unit on the roof would not clear our garage door.

2) I assume the handling while driving was affected.  Could you describe the differences?

3) I also assume the rear suspension was made stiffer?  Do things inside the rig jolt around more since you added the Super Springs?

Again, I would appreciate your inputs in these areas.

Ron

Thank You Dave for the detailed report.  This is something for me to keep in-mind if one day I want to address the sag when our rig is all loaded up.

I should have asked this next question earlier.....Do the Super Springs resist the sagging even after you load up your PC with water and all the rest, or do you still get noticeable sagging action that just starts at a higher point?  If so, how much sag-resistance compared to no Super Springs.

I realize I am asked some very specific questions that could be leaving you speechless.  It's not like you have nothing better to do in life than to have taken measurements before and after, loaded and unloaded.  But if you've had any recollections via observations, that is all I hope for.

Thanks!
Ron

Ron, have you considered the air bags that can be installed between the rear springs and frame? I had them on a Dynamax Isata and also a Born free. I liked them, only put about 35 pounds of air in them but it raised the the rear about 1- 1 1/2" , and seemed to stabilize it a little in the corners. The nice feature is that you can add more air which will raise the rear further however that also stiffens the ride. In your case you could leave the air out when you got home and you would not have a clearance problem going into your garage. Costs a lot less than new springs .
