Superduty rsk and rear overloads?

How many of you that have installed the rear superduty springs in you're trucks have used the superduty overloads as well? I'm planning on using them, as they look the same as my stock f-250 overloads. I plan on hauling a camper eventually and my boat. I like to be able to haul loads and use the weight capacity of the truck. Do they line up with the stops? and how do they work? Thank You.

Why not air-bags instead?

Re: Superduty rsk and rear overloads?

I will decide if and when I need airbags. I'd just like to know if anyone likes the overloads. I've never had a problem with using overloads and I've never found a need for airbags. I suppose I might want airbags when I start hauling a camper.

Air bags dry rot and leak. Springs are way more reliable

Re: Superduty rsk and rear overloads?

I found the article by TnScrambler. I read everything. I'll probably use my OBS overloads with the superduty rear springs as I don't want to have anything re arched. It looks like the obs overloads are the same as my superduty overloads. Anyone have a ride confirmation with out having to re arch the rear overloads. I'd prefer to have them and not have to worry about airbags right now. Thanks everyone.

SD "F" code springs with re-arched auxillary springs and Firestone airbags and B&W hitch and add some traction blocks in the mix.

And who said it wasn't possible?
