Default Helper Springs Advice Needed.

I'm in the middle of debating which Hellwig helper springs i will need. The three I am looking at are the 550lbs; 1000lbs; & the 2000lbs models.

Reason I'm looking at them is my '04 Ranger is sagging pretty low when loaded up with firewood. Last two loads have been with fresh oak and piled in there pretty good. I also plan to tow later on with a small boat or trailer as well.

My question is, if i were to go with the 2000lbs model. Would my ride become to stiff to drive around? The site i'm looking at has them cheaper than the 1000lbs model by 3$. Not sure if its worth the savings.

Or would the 550lbs springs be just enough that i won't need anymore.

Here's the link, http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/hellwi...page=1&sort=3a

What do you guys think?

Default re: Helper Springs

Hello, I know this post was a few months back but what did you end up doing? I'm looking into the same for my '08 2wd ranger for short/local hauls. Any pics out there of helper springs installed? Thanks all...
