Man that Ramen noodle diet is paying off.  Thinking about switching over myself. 

So what's in the box?  I have to admit, I've never really ventured in to upgrading springs and suspension much.  I don't tow heavy enough loads or often enough to warrant it.

LOL, I am getting tired of Ramen....only 3 flavors is driving me insane.   

Ordered a set of Rebel SumoSprings, progressive rate airless "bags" . rated at 2600 lbs @50% compression.   

I had airbags on the pior 250 but I also had air lines running to 3 locations, including the pump, gauge in the cab and dual manual inflate location at the license plate bolts.   I tested out the sumosprings on the F150 mainly for the side to side help when under load towing...was very impressed with them and I have them sold already so I got my money back minus 40 bucks.  I ordered these this week since they are running a 25% off sale till the end of the year but decided to get the 2 piece version for my 250.  Basically, these are air bags without the hassle.   I will run just a tad less weight distro on the hitch when pulling to keep the drive axle near normal height and load yet maintaining proper weight distribution and sway control.

Because I'm way too lazy to research, where do these go?  Do they replace the leafs?

think of them as an alternative to air bags

they replace the factory bump stop....not the overload.   I am installing today, will get a few photos.

I guess you won't be using your DeWalt Impact Ratchet.  Haha.

I stopped being lazy and looked these up.  Pretty cool.  I wonder how they hold up over time.  Do they wear out?  And do they provide any lift at all or do they retain factory height?

No Hyperdressing on the underside of your truck before taking pictures. Now go to your room!

How does it ride?  I know you probably haven't towed anything but what about empty?  Did it raise the rear any?

For what it's worth, I always pull the wheels off if they are in the way.  I have a DeWalt Impact that makes light work of it.  Takes longer to jack the vehicle off the ground.

I haven't tested them yet.Cowbos are playing....

Same stock height.  These are the 2 piece version.  There is a small gap to where they are not touching with no load.  They are progressive rate so they are soft at first them really firm up as they are compressed.    I went this route to help with sway when pulling.  They really helped the F150 so I am optimistic.
