    And you must suffer the slings and arrows of those who will decry your decision to convert over to the cursed coils in 3.....2.......1......

    Slings and arrows? Not from me. Any disadvantages are far outweighed by the fit and forget springs. Much better than worrying when the next cash injection is needed and waking up to a Disco looking like a dog with worms scratching it's a*se on the carpet.

    He hasn't been on here since 2014. I can say mine has been great since changing to coils. How much is the hitch weight for a burger van?
