Rear Sag #769700 01/15/2021 4:24 PM
by Dino
1995 GMC 2500 Vandura 130k miles w/350 .Read a lot about sag and trying to fix w/o replacing springs. The front end floats a little and will be going with new shocks all the way round but rear is sagging. This van never had a trailer behind it and is low top conversion.,,,,
I understand rear sagging has a lot to do with how the front end feels and rides so wish to fix it all with shocks and some kind of spring helper.
Adjustable air shocks I've heard will not help but "Hellwig" may but read that if springs are warn out then won't.
New springs are like 275,5 leaf 2.25" each and Hellwig 9511-L35 is 276 + 150 for install kit.
I guess the question is,,,,will new shocks "KYB Mono" all the way round plus Hellwig work or am I wasting my time and should just get new springs? I don't want to go air ride...Thanks in advance.

I had a similar sag and fixed it by replacing the 4/1 springs with 5/1 springs and it made a huge difference. Not just in looks, but ride and stability. This is the fix you need for yours. You'll only waste time and money replacing the other bits.
