    I just put a set of SSA8 Super Springs on. I used the upper hole of the springs to install. Took vehicle for a ride, no noises or negative effects. Was stiffer for sure.

    Ride Height:
    Stock: 48.5" (measured over centerline of rear wheel)
    Super Springs: 50.5"
    Empty Trailer (dual axle open car hauler): 49.5"

    Going to test with car on trailer today. In any case, is there a recommended setting on the SS? Upper hole, lower hole? Any pitfalls to watchout for?

    Here are the results. I wonder what would happen if i moved to the lower position on springs.

    Top of bed went to 48" when fully loaded, only 1/2" less than stock with no springs. Probably a good height.

    If you're talking about a rear helper spring location, I have seen them to into the middle of the leaf pack

    Sorry, I meant I have the Super Springs on the stiffest configuration.
    I wonder if I moved them to the other bolt hold, the looser position, how much the rear end would drop on the truck.

    3000lbs Addition at stiffest position? I wonder what they are at the other?
