    Ride Height???

    Hey, I have had my D50 for about four months now and I'm tired of the way my truck rides. I have look on Google and Bing and I couldn't find anything on it. Anybody have the original height of my 89 D50, I do have 14'' tires on my truck, i have been told that it 15'' originally?

    Thanks for any help.

    I would believe they ride a bit harsh because of the spring rate, haven't you ever wondered why these trucks can haul a big load....

    pull the straight helper leaf out of the rear - eliminates the springboard bounce when empty.

    Ya these trucks ride like they are a tin can getting kicked down the street, but funny that the suspension parts seem to last for years.

    they will raise the rear height of the truck (not sure you want to do that)....as long as i made more than the postage i'd let them go.
