Arrow Deaver leaf springs

Hello all. I'm still pondering my lift setup. I pretty much have the front dialed in, but trying to figure out the rear still.

I'm intrigued by the Deaver Leaf Springs, either the F31 or the G50's. But I know they state "Most Deaver springs are not designed for heavy hauling and heavy towing."

What is considered "heavy hauling" and "heavy towing"? I would assume probably nothing I am doing with a 4 cylinder Ranger, but just wanted to clarify what that threshold is and see if it's anything within the realm of the 2.3.

What do these limits equate to in real life? Wearing out and sagging the springs prematurely or if loaded up in such a way are they not designed to run that way giving a poor performance?

I like the idea of the Deavers, but I just don't want to get something that is going to suffer when I haul something or tow something (car, boat).

Thanks so much.

Default Re: Deaver leaf springs

Deaver would be the best option as they can build you anything for your needs on the spot. Call up Deaver and ask for Scott and ask his advice. Tell him James referred you.

Other things to consider are articulation factors, on top of load capacity and ride height compliments.
