Is it possible to use another set of leaf-springs (like from a wrecked T) to double-up the leafs to gain support? or is this a bad idea?
How much does your tool boxes w/tools weigh? You might just need to replace the stock leaf pak. Greg at PRG told me Nissan leafs do wear out.Is it possible to use another set of leaf-springs (like from a wrecked T) to double-up the leafs to gain support? or is this a bad idea?
Bad idea. You can't increase the GVWR by doubling springs, which I assume is the objective (unless you are just after a crappy ride). We have non-floating axles which means the axle bearing that supports the axle shaft for rotation at the outer end of the axle tube and the axle shaft itself support the weight of the truck.or is this a bad idea?
Actually, the "idea" is that I am planning on replacing the stock bed (mine it quite dented) with a wood flatbed. Since this would mean that I will be carrying not only my toolbox, but essentially a load of lumber at all times, I want better support for the T so it will not "squat" when loaded or pulling a trailer.... You can't increase the GVWR by doubling springs, which I assume is the objective ...
I hear they are even worse than stock for loads
Eh it has alot to do with leaf thickness too. If you took the springs from a 2500HD and mounted them to the Titan you wouldnt get much/ if any lift just a thicker/stronger leaf pack.Well it makes sense when you take the body away from the axle, that it would decrease in load capabilities. The only thing i can think of is air bags.
Yes, this is my daily driver. However, I tow and carry heavy weight on a regular basis, I also drive without any loads or trailers from time-to-time.if thats the goal, i would go with airbags. I know its more expensive, but the ride quality will be better too. Will you be using it as a daily driver or just when you have loads? If its only for hauling GVRW probably wouldnt be a problem, who is gonna weigh a titan to make sure its legal?
