Got a '94 GQ 4.2 EFI on LPG. FItted OME coils and shocks,2" lift, in '95. There was a vast improvement, but now when loaded rear sags heaps. I'd welcome any suggestions to lift rear without upsetting unladen ride quality. PS when load removed rear returns to good height, 100 thou since fitted. Thanks

Poly Air Springs....very good. Cost around $400 fitted. If you haven't heard of them, look them up in the archives. heaps of good feedback.

cheers

Concur with Andrew, I have Polly Air with OME springs and for that extra load they do a great job. Empty with 8-10 psi they ride is not affected.

HI all. i think Polyair bags are probably a good thing but way overpriced for what the are. An enterprising person should be able to do a similar product for half that. Regards Michael.

But what are you going to replace it with ? Baloons ?

Seriously, I got Polyair bags and I got them because trailer was sagging the back. Worked great.
$400 installed beats replacing rear springs with H/Duty and then have rough ride when empty.

Hi Andrew, i dont think you read what i Posted, I said they were good but really overpriced for what they are, a few hundred grams of Polyurethane, must be a mile of profit in them. regards Michael

Simple solution if you dont like the price is dont buy em.

I had some in my GQ they are now in Raymonds GU Ute with camper trailer on the back, ask him how happy he is with them.

Again, if budget fitted, 2 sets of springs would be the go, 20 mins you have them changed.

Im with Trukster , I have always used king springs and never had a problem . Sounds like you just need a good set of springs. My GQ was always loaded to the max and even with the boat on the back I was happy .
