Not sure if you may be interested but details below on the avenue I took with rear leafs
Super Spring

I have a Colorado 2011 LTR & took measurements when new with the bottom of the tow bar 345mm above GL
Fitted a long range tank 130lts, canopy & a small amount of gear in the back with tank full dropped the arse end by 35mm (not happy) & now tow bar sitting 310mm above G/L.
Fitted the super spring which has two settings (set on heavy setting) & with a full tank bottom of tow bar measured 390mm.
My ball weight when towing is around 260-280kg (bloody heavy I know) which dropped the springs approx 40mm.
Just returned from a 2,000km trip with van on back & they performed brilliantly. The beauty is they only come into play when you put the weight on & don’t seem to affect the ride when empty. Cost $520 & fitted myself in approx 1hr.
After the springs had settled bottom of tow bar is approx 380mm from GL.
So far pleased with the performance
Cheers Mick

just read the article on the super spring ,
quite funny really , the idea of a single leaf over the top of the axle as shown is
an idea ford had in the 70s for falcon ute etc , the only difference being is the
roller shackle , I still have a set of the single leaves and clips in my garage to suit
XP falcon ,the leaf is the same shape , ie , tapered in width to the ends ,
progress hey !!!!
