What's in the Box

Info

These new multi-leaf rear springs by Posies lower your classic Ford half-ton pickup 3" more than a set of stock replacement springs. Super Slide springs incorporate moly-nylon buttons that reside in die-formed pockets at the tips of the spring leave. Replace your 50 year old stock springs with these new, computer-designed leaf springs for a much smoother ride. Springs have reduced load capacity from stock just from the fact that you are lowering your vehicle.

Factory spec spring eye bushings come with springs. Shackles, shackle bolts and U-bolts sold separately. 

Specs

  • 43-1/2” eye to eye measurement
  • 2” wide leaf
  • Bronze bushings pressed in and reamed to .748" or 3/4”

Disappointed

August 26, 2016
These springs are advertised as a 3" lowering springs, the only difference in these and the stock springs were that they had one reversed eye. Other than that, exactly the same. These did not lower my truck at all! Very disappointed to say the least. If you want replacement springs they are great, if you are looking to lower your truck, don't bother.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Merchant Response:

Tbolt- thanks for taking the time to write us. It's important to consider the ride height of the vehicle with old, worn out springs is much lower than it would have been from the factory. This spring lowers the vehicle 3" over a new OEM spring. Feel free to give us a call if there's anything else we can do to assist!

not as advertised

August 24, 2014
These springs DO NOT fit upside down like shown, they do fit the opposite way but do not lower the truck anything close to 3"
No, I would not recommend this product.

Exactly what I wanted

June 03, 2014
These springs lowered the truck by approx. 3 inches and improved the overall ride of the truck. We plan on installing the Posie Duflex on the front this fall or whenever Speedway has a shipping special again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The majority of suspension components from 48 to 47 will interchange but on the rear springs #580152R you will need to verify the 2.00” width of the spring and the eye to eye of 43.50”

Yes, you should be able to use the stock shackles and u-bolts with this kit. We would recommend using new u-bolts with the new springs, but the dimensions are all the same as your stock springs. This kit will lower your ride height while also providing you with a smoother ride.

Measure from the center bolt to the ends of the spring. The shorter side goes to the front (fixed end) of the vehicle.

No the stock shocks will be too long for these dropped springs. We offer several shocks depending upon the final ride height of your truck. Once the springs are installed you can measure from center to center of the shock mounts with the truck sitting on the ground to get the proper shocks.

Do these springs lower 3" by having less arc, less leaves, or both? Also, i was planning on flipping the rear axle on top of the leaf springs. Will these springs work with this modifacation?

These springs achieve a lower ride height due to the reversed rear spring eye, and less free arch than a factory spring would have.
