    I know i might get flamed for this but ill ask anyway. Anyone ever remove their rear overload spring to lower the rear a little? I dont haul anything so i dont think i need it. I like the true prerunner stance with the rear squat but dont want to crank up the front coilovers any more. Thanx

    i wouldn't. the overload spring is there for a reason, to take some of the load of your two main leafs when they flex past a certain point, even during normal driving. some people with dropped minis run no overload, but they have limited suspension travel so this is less of a problem, but sometimes the springs do fail faster.
