No it's just a big rubber spring!

I got them specifically because they don't have air. They are hollow

You just unbolt your old bump stops (I had broke both mine off anyway) and bolt these to bracket and bolt it right to the truck. No drilling or anything.

Supposedly they have a 6000lb weight rating

I'm not gonna use the spacer. My springs are sagging a little because I have like 3 mm of space between them and the axle. Just went out and fitted them. I have a little wood in the bed but only a couple pieces of scrap.

I don't guess it should matter

Here it is preassembled, ready to bolt in






BTW what do you guys think of the workbench we put in last Friday?

Cool. Good to know. I suppose if I towed they might help.

Remember, before/after pictures.

Here's the driver side installed



Gotta go get a drill bit to remove a broken bolt on the other side. Otherwise I'd already be done. Install is really simple

Your drivers side spring is sagged more than the passenger side, that's why.

Looks good.
