The only time I have been happy with OME HD springs

There has to be 1500lbs in back. 150 sq ft of marble, 10 3'x5' backer board, 100lbs of thinset, 10lbs of grout and a toilet seat.

That's some serious weight! I can see why you were looking for other springs.

I still have those stock springs if you want them. No charge. But Nevada still isn't very close.

Thanks! Digging through the spring Forrest in my basement I think I found things that will work. 110 fronts in front and OME HD fronts in back, but no time for the swap with work, the kitchen and the never ending 110.

If you like soft while being able to carry a load, long soft springs with air bags inside them. Works great. You air them up when loaded and down when not.
