    Just for s&g what is the sping rate of the stock front springs? It seems that my ez-rides actually ride smoother than stock.

    With my Suburban I measured and checked them. The spring rate (2 leaves) must amount to about 520 lbs/in. That is not too rigid, But I think the problem is situated with the short spring travel.

    I doubt the factory springs are that high, but I think the TF ez-rides are either the same, or alittle softer than factory. 520 lbs/in is what Rancho and Pro comp springs are at (520 lbs/in). I have Ranchos on the front of my burb and they are alot stiffer then factory.
