Re: Sulastic leaf spring add-on

I have them on my van. They're great. Took most of the harshness out of the rear suspension, and also helps on most washboards (really big ones still get the axle hopping though). They do not however make the ride "soft". they only reduce harshness. If you want a softer ride, you'll need softer springs.

Re: Sulastic leaf spring add-on

All this suspension talk usually confuses me since I'm not an expert on it. lol Glad you like the product though.

I really don't want to throw this tread off, but carringb, I've seen some posts of yours where you briefly mentioned some mods of your van in which it is a dually conversion. Would you mind making your own write up in a separate thread all about how your van was modified? I just love reading owners' modifications and builds here. There's no pictures posted in your profile account for me to look at. You don't have to but I was wondering what add-ons your truck had.
I'm a quiet guy from Kentucky in my 30s. I have Usher Syndrome, which is similar to Retinitis Pigmentosis, so I don't drive. I love Ford cars and trucks... and now Sportsmobile vans! Sportsmobile, please consider building the upcoming Ford Transit Sportsmobile!! :)
