    These spring packs are brand new and come with the rollers that mount to your rear axle. Made by National Spring, they come off of a class 8 truck that was never raced. Some mounting hardware (built by Curt LeDuc) is also included. These would cost well over $1200 if you were to order them yourself. I'm asking $650 for the set with the extras.You won't beat it. These will be shipped from Phoenix, AZ (85023) and weigh around 250lbs. Or your welcome to pick them up yourself.

    Don't know about the stiffness, I rode in a Class 8 built by LeDuc and the quarter elips on that was real soft and that thing skimmed the bumps.

    You dont need those Being reliable is a major goal for mine. I like to hit the back wood trails that don't see much use. So The mods I'd recomened would be: 3/4 Ton axles (cheaper then 1 Ton, but 1 Ton is better) and either a 4" or 6" suspension lift, and 33" to 36" tires. Now I don't know how you feel about trimming fenders, so I'll leave that one alone. That'll get ya out in the woods.

    I have forgotten all my spring learning. 1/4 elips have half?? the spring rate as a full length spring.
