    Hi All, Has anyone put 3/4 ton sub, or pickup springs in the rear of their K5, did it bounce them all over the road? When the wrecker driver told me that he'll have to go back and get "BIG ORANGE," I asked him what "BIG ORANGE" was. He said "BIG BUCKS!"

    From what I've read and seen it would indeed make it a very rough ride.

    What are you talking about... A wrecker? Are you saying it would take a bigger wrecker to haul a K5 with 3/4 ton springs? Because that wouldnt make a difference.

    I didn't quite get that last part either. [​IMG] FYI- With the 3/4 tons, things are definitely going to get "bouncy" for ya. Good news is that kidney belts are on sale at Wal-Mart. [​IMG]

    Not sure but I think 3/4 ton rear springs are longer. 56" as to 52" for 1/2 ton springs.
