S10 leaf springs

Post by H2OJoe »

Do you need to swap the S10 leaf springs with the rear facing forward when installing on an Astro? I thought I read that somewhere but don’t remember doing it on my last van several years ago.

It's been a while, but I used the Overland HD springs and they were excellent. Really added stability the vans needs.
I'm pretty sure they only fit one way.
S10 springs are probably too soft
