Re: smooth ride

Common way to do it is to ask what fits or to take a suspension company's word for it. It just does not work that way. An articulation ramp, a keen eye and some real work like you did is the only way...

Re: An Unsatisfied Deaver Spring Customer

If your rig drives OK without swaybars then I bet your spring rate is too high. Remove a leaf or two from the packs. You don't even have to remove the whole spring from the van to swap leafs around.
