superlift leaf spring question

how stiff are the superlift leaf springs compared to the stock leaf springs

my NEW oem replacement leaf springs have sagged so much , now the rear end is 1 inch lower than front end

i like the rear end to sit at least 1.5 inches higher than the front end

the NEW oem leaf springs rebound too easily

also to get rid of the spacer block if i can

i do tow a boat once in a while

I didn't know they made them either. I do know a lot of people run the skyjackers but haven't heard of anyone using the SL ones.

yes superlift manufacturers lift leaf springs

#01-193 for the rangers #01-194 for the explorers

i found the info i needed

they are stiff and DO NOT utilize pads between the leave ends which is what i need ( load carrying capacity )

the 01-193 SUPERLIFT ranger leafs have 9 inches of unloaded arch to them

UPDATE!!!!!

i bit the bullet and purchased the superlift 01-194 ford explorer 3" lift leaf springs

i had them installed yesterday

bye bye spacer blocks , even with the spacer blocks gone these springs still provide 3 inches of rear lift

they would compliment the superlift front end lift kit very well

the bushings that are required

http://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/slf-340

and they ride nice and smooth

i will have to crank up my torsion bars again tomorrow morning to compensate

I would recommend putting a few 100 miles on the truck first, the springs will settle as they break in and may level you out without having to do anything.
