    non - lowering aftermarket rear springs

    all the spring info in the stickies seem to be for lowering, I like my stock ride height, but the rear springs are way to soft, I carry a lot of gear in the back of my sx4 "mini truck" plus i run a hitch mounted cargo carrier.

    soo, any one know where I can find a heavier set of rear springs that will maintain my stock ride height??

    Honestly, your best bet would be a set of air bag helper springs.

    Hi, In Wagoneer's thread,"Overload rear springs", he had success with coil spring spacers.

    way behind getting these things installed, but it was so simple I should have done it sooner, and they work just fine. raised the sag about 4 inches when loaded..
