Rear Coil Springs??

O.K. I don't know if this sound stupid or not but I was looking at the suspension on my truck and that is what popped into my head. Has anyone tried to put a mount on the rear of their truck for coil springs? Think of it. A set of OME's and 5100's on the FRONT and REAR!!! Would it work?? Hmmm. Of course, if this has already been hashed out please let me know. I am just curious but hell most of the time I have no idea what I am talking about.

You dont have enough weight in the rear to need leaf springs plus coilovers.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You would need to make a link set up to stabalize the axel.

Useing coils AND leafs would be like this, but not as plush:

What is this link stuff you speak of? Is it the same "link" I hear around long travel talk?

Chevrolet used this system for years....I had them on my 72 1/2 ton truck and the ride was amazing. Dodge just went to coils for the rear on some of their trucks and I'm told the ride is fantastic.
As far as links, you would need long trailing arms angled inward and a tracking bar that mounts from rear to frame.
