    Hey all I just picked up a 92 Astro Cargo Van for the shovel crew. It has the single composite leaf spring on each side, does anyone know how much weight they can take without overloading? Thanks

    My Aunt had one 2000mid Astro 2wd. Heavy load we did was 2500 pound. It kinda ok but I think 2500 is MAX for van. They had air bag on it.

    Open the door and look on the DOT sticker , it lists the max gross and max load.

    Someone has destroyed it at some point.

    Thanks Mil, I'll probably just fill it with a half pallet at a time plus crew, blowers, etc.
