By Jakesrodandkustom on March 02, 2020. It moved the steering wheel position so i had to take the steering wheel off and realign that but that was the only issue I guess it does this because it moves the axle back a little but I saw no issue the wheels still fit in the fender nicely.
Yes, I recommend this product. Great springs - Junk U-bolts. By Joe on January 07, 2019. The springs themselves are great. They are quality pieces that fit well and installed as expected to the chassis.
The bushings were correctly sized and did not need to be reamed to fit the pins. They lowered the truck 2 1/2 from stock, but I expect it to settle a bit more as they break in. I have not yet driven it. On the other hand, the replacement shorter u-bolts were a joke.
Total waste of time and material. The first issue was the diameter. The originals were 1/2" and the replacements were only 7/16". The second issue is that the original u-bolts were two different lengths. The front bolt is 1/2 longer to accommodate attaching the lower shock mount.
The replacement bolts were just one length and too short to attach the shock mount. No shocks and undersized bolts might be fine for a trailer queen, but if you intend to drive it that is NO BUENO!!! The included nuts were Nylocks - fine for a garden trailer but not the correct nuts for automotive axle u-bolts. U-bolts are too short and the wrong size.By 56 F-100 on December 31, 2018. Haven't installed them yet but look like they will work well. Posies Super Slide Drop Springs. By Theodawg on September 08, 2018. I havn't road tested the truck, only installed to check fit, then removed to paint, I'll update this review after the road test.
Pros: At first glance the springs look very nice, well made. I love the stance of my truck after install. The old springs didn't have much spring left and the truck leaned to to one side. The new drop springs didn't cause my axle to move back and appears to be in the correct stock location. I haven't found any steering issues by turning the steering wheel back and forth while on jack stands.
The topside of the spring center bolt looked like it was hacked off with a set of bolt cutters, but wasn't an issue I needed to shorten it some to reuse my original u-bolt tie plate. It is recommended that you test fit the springs before painting, I did as they recommended.By Jake on October 20, 2017. I got these springs because the previous owner had torched the old springs so bad I was sitting on bump stops. They ride pretty decent so far, I've put about 20 miles on the truck over not so good roads, and it rides decent. I really wish they would have made the springs center the wheel in the wheel opening. When lowering a truck like this, the suspension travel isn't there in the shackles anymore to necessitate keeping the wheel so far back in the wheel well. Overall a decent product though.
