Keep closer to level @ 5psi since you already dropped the coin on yer 2.75's. Depends on how often you haul and yer budget, I reckon.

I end up hauling more than the motorcycle a couple time a month. It's not uncommon for me to haul lumber, and other building materials during my side jobs. I'd say that the springs are within my budget, most important would be doing the job right and something that will last. Not necessarily what's cheapest.

Get the springs and be done with it. Putting a cycle in the back and towing, you don't want to deal with bags. I ditched the bags and have the 50%.



Today - and I have 2.8 blistens up front.

looks good, would you recommend swapping out shocks with the 50%? How much did they lift your back end? How is the ride without a load?

I have 50% because I'm always loaded. Either with trailer tongue weight or the generator + gas + water + 2 kids & wife. I swapped shocks at all 4 corners. And the ride isn't much different over stock. A little harsher over potholes or speed bumps.

The 25% variables might work better for you. Bags are a hassle in my opinion, they keep the coil from compressing and make the ride harsh under load. This was my experience.

How it rides is subjective. What might be harsh to you might be fine to me.

I only experienced 2 inches in the back.

I just found part# TTC-1211 that will give that 50% increase in capacity while keeping the rear as close to stock as possible. Any thoughts on these? I know I am a little behind the curve as far as this stuff lol.

If your truck is a daily driver, changing the springs to anything but the variable rate TTC will affect your ride quality.
For a DD, airbags are honestly the best choice to keep the ride and reduce sag, for under $100 and an easy installation.
I had Timbrens. For our application they replace the factory bumpstops. If you hit (engage) them, they are VERY hard, and it can cause jounce. We rode on ours fully engaged while towing and the ride was BRUTAL. I took them off after that 1 trip.

If you do anything else with the truck, the springs might be a good choice; it's up to you and how you use the truck.
