Most likely someone put in some aftermarket springs that left you with no extension travel.

Yes, the self-leveling unit is definitely still there. I even took a whack at the slim (44M?) nut on the rim of the cup that it's set in last night. Will check to see if I can find anything on the springs...

Just getting set up to change out these rear springs as prompted from the input above - I was unable to find any markings on the installed springs other than being black with a dab of green paint down low on the outside face of one of the coil loops, so I ordered a pair of the oem springs for the with-Boge configuration ( nrc6388 & nrc7000 ) which are definitely coiled from a thinner size (of steel bar?) than what is on there now.

Couple of questions, though:

I'm thinking that I should measure the amount of lift of the springs that are on there now b4 I remove them...where exactly should the measurement be taken?

The new springs are sold as one part # for drivers side & a different part# for passenger side...is that from a RHD point of view or do I dutifully install the driver side part # on my left side?

Chunk the Boge unit! Waste of space! In terms of springs being sided…driver's side means DRIVER'S SIDE whether it be RHD or LHD.

If someone is throwing a good one away, I'd like to have it for a spare and I'll pay shipping. I find it useful when I hook to a heavy trailer. Even with a two inch lift, it helps to level things out with my 110.
