    Leaf spring wedge?

    Is there any products like a wedge that goes between the overload spring and the leaf pack to help the sag?. I do know of helper springs and airbags, but I think a wedge would work if there are makers.

    Not a good idea. Doing that will put a stress point on the main leaf of the spring pack and eventually break the spring. There’s better ways to increase the load carrying ability of the truck.

    Ok that's what I was afraid of. What's a cheaper way to help the springs?

    1 hour per side with no compressor and you can find them on kijiji for $100 used in good condition.

    I agree. Air bags are great.
