    Looking at buying Hellwig 985 helper spring set for the rear of my 1996 Silverado 1500, im not looking to do air bags just need a little extra spring for when I load by box full of camping gear/fire wood. I usually have 400lbs to 500lbs in the box and my camper loaded up is about 4500lbs. I use a weight distribution hitch but the bed weight seems to be sagging the truck. Just looking to see if any half ton guys have any experience with this product or brand. Thanks

    for the price id give them a shot. it might ride a little rougher unloaded but that can be expected with about any overload.
