we can tell how supple by poking them with a screwdriver. Not quite sure which pads you're referring to but the truck bed sits on four of these donuts the end of stroke has a triangular hollow rubber block as I recall, not quite sure which donuts you are referring to. are they powdered or covered in jimmies?

They mount to the coil spring and give it a lift idk how else to explain it I just wanna know are they strong enough to take my truck muddin with and how they mount exactly

are they air cushion suspension, if they are there is a stud on the top and a stud on the bottom. other pads, don't know...krazy glue?


Find a muddin and four wheelin forum and ask the people that use them. They sound cheap and cheap stuff can leave you stranded. In the bog is not the place to find out that they are not strong enough or they can pop out.


they are polyeurethane spacers that go on top of the coil spring to lift the front end. depending on model, you can possibly get 3" of lift from them. basically, you disassemble suspension and put the spacer on top of the spring. it's actually pretty easy to do.


and they won't come out or break on you like the previous poster suggested. they are a very reliable way of getting a small amount of lift for the front end to level out the stance of your truck.
