Re: Deaver Springs long term reviews?

Ok we worked it out with Jeff and you just need to tell them what and when you need it.

one this is to really do a good once over when picking up the van. I missed that the axel was moved back and had to take it back for the to swap out the mains and move it up 5/8 of a inch. Looking at photos of the van it looks like the axel was setting back before the new springs but these pushed it back more. The good thing is Jeff had them in a week. Check all the bolts and ask if they had any fitment issues( they might not bring it to your attention) like exhoust might get hit with the spring when it drops out( not sure how Im going to fix it or if I really need to)

Ok the ride is 1000 time better and I thought it was good before. 75 on a bumpy freeway and the coffe cups in the sink dont rattle( well I cant hear them anyway). much more stable side to side when pulling out of driveways.

Jeff said it will sag about 1/2 a inch it should be perfect once it does.

now you all want pictures.

before




after

Deavers made my old Quigley ride like a Cadillac. The SMB, not so much. Nicer on the hwy, but not 4k worth.

Good info to know. 4k is a lot $$ to spend on a slight improvement.
