Default Rear end sag
So im going to be hauling a 700# polaris in my Ram 1500 and just wondering how much sag will this truck have? Will it need helpers? My 99Chevy didnt squat much at all but that was a 2500

Put it in there and if you don't feel comfortable and don't like it take it out

Check out these replacement coils from Tuf Truck. People give good reviews about the ttc-1211. I recommend you give them a call, tell them what you're trying to do, and they will point you in the right direction.

If I were in your shoes, I'd go with the 1211's.

Air suspention would probably be better as you inflate them when you need it,
if you are driving without weight in the bed then just leave them disinflated and it won't change your ride quality.

In your case, airbags will suffice but,for about same money and less work, new springs mean you will never have to worry about excessive sag again.

Air bags can and do leak. SPrings are springs
