Re: SPOA using stock springs?
SPOA configuration does work the spring much more than the original SPUA config does. and they do wear out faster, my front springs went fast... and my rear springs went really flat fast to the point there was no arch in them, but there are things you can do about it.
I am running a 5 pack setup on the back of my rig. take the two bottom leafs off a front pack and add them to the bottom of the rear pack... also I am still running the overload spring with them..
the ride is nice and not bad at all... also I have noticed that I have quite a bit more getup and go with them this way, less of the initial torque is being lossed by the axel rotating like it used to with the old 3 pack.. less axel rotation, more power getting to the wheels...
that is one option you can do instead of buying a track bar.
the minimum lift you will get with a spoa is aprox 5 inches of lift and if you add the two extra leafs, you will be sitting at just over 5 inches of lift- up to 6 or so inches of lift, depending on what condition the springs are that are going on your rig.
hope this helps.
