Should a Vehicle with Weight Distribution System Need Suspension Enhancement


I use a weight distribution hitch and 1 set of spring spacers. I feel like the coils are still being squished too much for my liking when towing my trailer. Can I install a 2nd set of these on each spring to help decrease this sag? Vehicle is a 2001 Ford Expedition with coil springs.


Expert Reply:

If your weight distribution system is properly rated and set up on your vehicle you should not need suspension enhancement, especially not a second set of it to provide additional support.

I would verify that you have the correct rated WD system for your loaded tongue weight which counts the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle as well as make sure your system being set up properly. Your sag problem will lie with one of those two thing mentioned.

I also attached a help article on determining tongue weight as well.
