Helper Springs

Just wondering what everyone thinks about helper springs? I'm thinking about purchasing some off ebay. Trying to remedy my leaf spring problem with out spending $1200.

Here is another option.

I am happy with the set I installed on my Taco. They allow me to tailor the support to the load whether it is in the bed or on a trailer.

Check out Helwig. They make a leaf spring helper kit that mounts to your existing leaf pack. I had a set on my Titan and was very pleased with it.
