Our '99 4x4 Durango suspension is shot. We pull a heavy boat all the time. I would like to beef up the rear end; but I don't want to lift it. (Durango's look gay lifted.) The leaf springs are under the axle. Any recommendations on what to do. By the way... Not that it should matter but it has a 5.9 L.

I would put a set of air-ride bags on that way you could stiffen it up when pullin a load and let the air out when driving without. I have a Dakota and thats what I am using works great.

Tom, Thanks for the info. Did you do-it-yourself? Any particular brand? About how much does it cost?

I used the timbren load helpers. That is what the shop here in town recommends for everything all the way up to large delivery trucks. They are specific to your car. They are very inexpensive and work awesome. The very cool thing is that you have a stock ride until you put a load on it. I am able to tow our boat with our explorer.

Why do Durango's look gay lifted? This is my old one 12,000 feet up just out side Silverton CO...

I agree with Ty, the Timbren (http://www.timbren.com/) rubber springs work well on my 2000 Durango. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install, the Timbren spring bolts in place of the factory bump stop. I would also recommend upgrading the shocks to a ride control shock like the Monroe or the Rancho RSX.

Air bags are the only way to go. They work great. The ride is great. There inexpensive.

I just put on a set of Airlift bags, Actually Tony Neal just put on a set of Airlift bags (Thanks Tony, PROPS to you man!), on my Grand Cherokee. They are sweet and work well. Make sure if you get them that they come with a low pressure sensor.
