    i am in the process of building a Bummer. If you dont know what it is it is basicaly a fiberglass body conversion. i have been told the steel body on a pickup truck weighs around 2000 pounds. the bummerkit weighs only 400 and i am building the kit off a 79 bonanza K30. is there any way i can soften up the ride so it doesnt beat me to death on the road? i will be running 42 inch swampers. any help is appreciated very much.

    You need to get lighter springs or remove some leaves from your spring packs
