I may swap my stock springs back(payload of ~1,700lb IIRC) since I'll be carrying 1,000 lb every day for the next month.
It sounds good, but how would that effect the ride of the truck if you go back to the stock springs? I wouldn't want to see some one shoot themselves in the foot when it comes to gains they have already made.
