don't know about the brand or quality springs they offer, but you can get them for a little over $100.

I found a good way to add some "sping in your step" is to hit up the local junk yard. Lots of different options to choose from to meet your needs. You can easily add leaves, take them out, add helpers, or even use and F350 springs if you like. Usually there are some minor alterations that need to be made, but nothing a good drill and a hacksaw can't fix.

I used to have a 79 3/4 ton 4wd. Which translates into " run over a pebble in the road and your head hit the roof of the cab." I took 2 leafs out of the front and moved them to the back set up as helpers. After that, it road really well, and didn't sag as much when I pulled the bobcat around.

I don't know if they have a website but there is a place in cincinnati (actually in sharonville) called dent springs. I am sure they would ship. Very good place.

I have a 03 2500hd chevy duramax and pull a 29 foot travel trailer. The simple fix was to install air bags in the rear. Easy to install, total of about 4 hours. When not pulling my camper I let all the air out for a smoother ride. When needed I just air them up to about 50psi..
