You need to find/buy a set or use a large piece of angle iron and fabricate and get that spring off the bed. It wouldn't take much weight for it to punch through hitting a dip or pothole. I can't find those online. They are called spring perchs and spring stops.
Thanks GXPVenom. I'm making new perches and will get 'em put on, BEFORE I go anywhere, that'* for sure.
Got this dually for a good price and glad of it since it needs some very important work to get it back to it'* stock height, both rear and front. Got coil springs for the front from the same truck these overloads came off of too. Should be good for my truck too.
Strange what some folks do to a good machine! Change was just for lowering but I'm gonna use this truck for a very nice RV for "the Mrs." and I to do some traveling.
