They cant quote one price and do the work then call you with a higher price if you want your van back....that's illegal

Yea I was thinking of the add a leaf at one point but I tow a very heavy trailer.(in terms of tongue)
The tongue is over 700 lbs and the springs I have are just 1800#. I contacted stangel bros in PA and they make them for my van for like 165 each and they offer them in 3 weights 1750, 2300, and 2500 so I figured I will just get 2300# because that will not only give me an extra 1000# of capacity but it won't change the handling as much as say 2500#. Besides the extra 400# I can make up with a weight distribution. But yea I was at the junk yard parking lot looking at my van, and the back is down and front is up (face palm) shit...

It's very annoying driving fast or when it's windy the front end just goes all over the place.

But the springs will probably be my next project, so I have to save up. I been fixing cars around town for a few dollars here and there and I have made about 100 bucks after all my personal expenses gas and stuff like that. Gas is expensive, I would mind if gas was back to 1.25 like it was 10 years ago or so. Hell back then the van could take us from NJ to FL and back to NJ for about 175 dollars give some of course. Now round trip is about 370-400 bucks fuel, it's crazy man.

The tongue is to heavy...Is the load equally balanced over the center of the trailer axle ??

Heh, no one was around to take pics otherwise I would have had someone holding the ladder.

We may have figured out the leak issue - looks like it was coming in from the old TV antenna fin.

I don't have a weight distribution, it's around 700lbs dead tongue weight. It's not too much because the vehicles rating is for 800. The back of the van didn't go down too much when I put the trailer on it, but there wasn't much farther it could of gone before it would hit the load spring.

I want to get a weight distribution so bad but they're expensive.
