Hey guys hows it going.

Does anyone know if springs from a U1300L or the like would swap into my U1650L? I know the frame width and axles are different and such, but are the actual spring designs the same? I am looking for softer springs for my U1650L, especially in the front, as I wont have any front implements on it or anything and want a softer ride.

Thanks for anyone that knows!

Good question. I have tired front springs on my 1250L and have wondered about going with 1300 springs. I only have about an inch and a half at static without the plow. Almost touches when plow is on. What distance do you have between axles and rubber snubbers?

Chas,

My truck is up at Rob's, I would have to ask him what he sees as far as distance. I bought some U1450 springs, but they were way too short, something was off. But some nice soft flexible springs sounds good if I can find what works!
