    Can`t help with those But I will say The Super Springs are one of the best things I have ever done to any vehicle.

    I have these on my '04 Tacoma reg. cab, 4wd. I have the nuts backed off as far as possible to keep the tension off for a softer ride and I'd guess at that setting they allow a 700 lb. load with the truck sitting level. The ride is stiffer even at this setting, but not too much more than stock. Now as far as the clamps, they do get in the way and prevent the overload springs from being placed really close to the axle, but they seem to be working out ok after 2 years. I use this truck as a daily driver and part time junk hauler, but I wish there was a full leaf pack I could replace this with that wouldn't give me too much lift or a rougher ride.

    I went for the Hellwig 1250 helper springs , a bit more money ,but worked out really well so far. Got about a 1 1/2" lift and they are cranked but half way. Can adjust independently so can off set the Tacoma tilt somewhat. Handles better ,rides a bit harder ,can feel the joints on our bad roads now, Not nearly as harsh as the AALs on my 97 taco. I wanted a firmer ride . Toyota lost there suspension when they went to the Tacoma . My old 87 Extra Cab was a real truck out the door . the 97 was a Yuppy mobile truck . needed some spine added to come close to the old one. ~~OBTs~~
