    I'm contemplating installing the Hellwig 1909 helper spring in my truck. My truck really sags in the rear end when I attach my boat trailer. This seems to be a relatively simple install and inexpensive $<300.00
    What is everyone's thoughts?

    They seem to make sense. I don't want to sacrifice ride and I pan on a lift in the future, possibly Toytec 3/1.

    I have it on my Baby. I have felt (0) ride difference. It does help take the weight of my camper and reduced any noticeable sag. I do use a WDH also when towing. That and a TRD Sway bar were installed off of my truck that I traded in on the Silver Streak. Hope this helps. As a side note the helwig is adjustable depending on how much Spring Help is needed.

    I had the halves on my Tacoma. They worked well. Kept truck level with boat hooked up. I had the Baja suspension so truck was a little nose up without Helwigs when carrying a load.
