not designed for a stiffer ride....i jus need it to absorb the axel b4 it hits the bumpstop.... its pretty much jus gonna float until i hit a bump to hard,

i dont want the truck to rest on it so ima make a few adjustments to it
You might have to cut them shorter cause im lifted 3" in the back and they are prob 1" or 2" from touching on the top. Also I would see in somehow cushioning the top of the spring better, so when it does hit, it hits soft and doesn't slam but rather compresses the spring till it hits the bump stop.

looks nice. does it make your ride stiffer in the rear?
No it doesn't because they aren't actually in use until there is a load in the back of the truck or a trailer is hooked up too lower the leafs under the weight of whatever your hauling and lets the weight rest on the helper springs. I noticed that it does help when you are making turns with weight in the bed. Before the helper springs the truck would shift really bad and I would have to slow down quite a bit but now I can turn like normal with weight in the bed and the helpers springs do there job.

You have to remember that he is lowered already though so his might be engaged with nothing in the bed. If he cuts it like suggested maybe it wont :shrug:

yea that is true, but I think if he doesnt cut them it might actually cause some lift cause those are some heavy duty springs. If he cuts them to fit snug he should be golden.
