Well after getting no response from people familiar with this product I have gone ahead and bought the overload springs. I own a 2001 Coleman tent trailer and with it hooked up I find the rear end looks like crap <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif">. My dealer says the amount of sag is normal. <BR>I should have them installed in a couple of weeks. Once installed I'll post report on ride height, smoothness etc. Plus sag while hooked up to the trailer!<P><P>

Well it is done. Total install time 1.25 hours including new discs and pads in the rear.<P>ride height increased about 1/4 inch...no harshness but when I sit my 225lb ass in the back I get very little sag (less than before) I'll hook up the trailer tonight and see how it looks and rides. By the way lots less roll in corners as well. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Well here we go. I hooked up the trailer last night and went for the first ride. I am happy to say the springs performed as promissed. With 175lb tongue weight and 1705lbs dry 2550gvwr the springs handled it no problem. Looks like I have next to no load at all in the back when viewed from the side. Better still, when crossing rail road tracks the springs took the hit well and the stock shocks damped well without any pogoing. (I have 54,000 kms on car) I will eventually upgrade to Bilsteins brobably next year but stock are fine for now. As for pulling the weight just remember to keep it in 4 if you have a N/A car and over 1000lbs get a trailer with electric brakes (save your car brakes and prevent warping). <BR>Hopefully pics next week. I recommend the springs without reserve <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <P>Oh yes the trailer I pull is a Coleman Santa Fe MY2001<BR>

Yea, I am going to get the Bilsteins when i get the springs. I have 84K on my car and the shocks don't feel like they did at 40K <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>
