Product Q&A

Will these increase the height slightly? The thickness of the spring? 1/2"?LennyDec 13, 2021
Best Answer:Hi Leonard, I'm pleased to assist you. Yes. Helper springs are fully adjustable up to around 40mm for more ground clearance. The thickness of the springs is no longer mentioned in our database. It is guaranteed to have the same thickness as the original factory springs.

Customer Reviews

Made a huge difference when it comes to its purpose. I liked the fact that it’s completely bolt on. I’ve had them on my 2004 Colorado Sport for two weeks now loaded with tool boxes and they help support the load greatly. I use to bottom out with the same load but not anymore. The instructions could definitely be more specific as far as placement but still a good purchase.

Helper Spring, Set Of 2
Restore your lost stiffness with this product...
Easy to install even without impact tools (just takes longer is all). Haven't put extra heavy load yet but improved ride greatly as stock installation.

These leaf springs did exactly as promised. My truck rides much smoother with the weight of my tools in the bed and does not hit the bump stops when I hit a speed bump or a large pothole
