Enhancing Factory Overload Springs

The upper factory overload springs on your truck are designed to help compensate for a large payload. When you are hauling a heavy load, your truck's standard leaf springs can't always counteract the weight of it. As a result, if you hit a bump when your suspension is fully loaded, the leaf springs will give and cause your truck to bottom out. The overload springs help keep this from happening by mounting above the leaf springs to provide initial points of contact for your vehicle's frame, thus removing some of the load from the standard springs.


Upper Overload Spring

These StableLoads are designed to replace the factory bump stop pads that are mounted to your truck's frame. The factory pads are typically quite small and will not contact the overload springs unless your truck is dramatically sagging. By replacing these small pads with the much larger StableLoads, you can fill the gap between your upper overload springs and your frame-mounted bump stop bracket. This pre-activates the overload springs, ensuring that they are engaged from the start instead of engaging only when extreme sagging occurs.


StableLoad Suspension Enhancement and Aftermarket Air Bags

By enhancing your upper overload springs in the way described above, you will notice less sway and body roll. This is due to the pre-loading effect of the StableLoads, which helps to better distribute the weight of your payload over the entirety of your factory suspension. This is the primary difference between StableLoads and many air bag overload systems.


With air bag suspension enhancement, the load in your truck is being taken on by the air bags. Air bags are designed to level your truck, and they operate as intended when they're under a normal load. But if you are hauling or towing a particularly heavy load, this type of suspension enhancement can create some problems. In order to get the correct amount of leveling and to ensure that your suspension won't bottom out, you will likely have to fill the air bags to a very high psi. Doing this effectively removes the load from your factory suspension. As a result, your truck's suspension is no longer able to operate as it was designed. This can lead to handling issues, such as porpoising, sway, or body roll.


Upper Overload StableLoad Installed with Air Bags

If you currently have this problem with your air bag system, you can add StableLoads to your suspension and get the best out of both products. StableLoads are effective on their own, but they've also been tested with aftermarket air bag suspension systems. The two enhancements work particularly well together if you have a heavy payload. By installing StableLoads between your upper overload springs and your truck's frame, you are already adding support to your suspension to help prevent bottoming out, which air bags work to prevent as well. As a result, you won't have to fill the bags nearly as full, which means that they won't take as much of the load off of your factory suspension, thus allowing your suspension to function as designed - only better.


Tested and Proven Winner

TorkLift's StableLoads were tested against vehicles with no suspension enhancement and vehicles with air bags that were inflated to 100 lbs; and the results are clear. By adding StableLoads to your suspension your vehicle will ride smoother, causing less wear and tear on your suspension and tires. The trucks that were tested were loaded with 2,800 lbs. The degree of movement was then recorded, using an inclinometer, when the trucks encountered the 3 most common types of handling problems: side-to-side sway, porpoising, and body roll.


Preventing Side-To-Side Sway

Side-to-side sway is triggered when your vehicle encounters uneven ground, such as a pot hole, and the suspension gives way when it cannot counteract the weight of the heavy load being carried. This creates a side-to-side bouncing motion. As you can see in the graph above, air bags provide an advantage over no suspension upgrades. But the StableLoads offer dramatic improvement over both the standard suspension and the air bag suspension.


Preventing Porpoising

Porpoising is the rising and falling action your vehicle makes when driving over an object like a speed bump. Having too much bounce can make you feel like you're riding in the back of a school bus. As you can see in the graph, there is virtually no difference in porpoising between trucks with standard suspension systems and those with air bags. Only the StableLoad offers improvement for this type of problem.


Preventing Body Roll

Body roll occurs when your heavy load transfers unevenly as you navigate a turn, causing one side of your vehicle to lean dramatically. In some cases this can lead to your truck's tires coming off of the ground and it could even cause your vehicle to roll over if it is too top heavy. Again, according to the graph above, air bags offer no help with this problem. It is only with the StableLoads that stability improves.

Speaker 1: Today we're gong to take a look at the Torklift stable load suspension upgrade for up or overload springs. This is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC inaudible 00:00:11 3500 trucks. And on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if these will work for your application.Now these parts will dramatically improve the handling by preactivating your vehicles up or overload spring. This will help to evenly distribute the weight ensuring that the truck stays level for better handling. And it reduces side to side sway and body roll. Now these stable loads are designed to replace the factory bump stop pads that are mounted to your truck's frame.

The factory pads are typically quite small and they will not contact the overload springs unless your truck is dramatically sagging. So by replacing those small pads with this much larger stable load, you can fill that gap between your upper overload springs and your frame mounted bump stop bracket.And this will preactivate your overload springs, ensuring that they're engaged from the start instead of just engaging when you're extreme sagging. If you notice they have a nice angled structure to them, maximizes the contact surface for more effective support. The tapered wedge design will contact the curve springs better than a flat pad.Has these tabs right up here at the top, these are anti-rotation key tabs. They help keep the tabs in place.

Now these parts are compatible with after market airbag suspension upgrades. And they are a simple do it yourself installation. Basically the stable load units will just bolt on to each frame mounted overload bump stop bracket, so no drilling required.The kit will include everything here on the table, the four stable load pads, four adapter plates, all the necessary hardware. And these parts are made in the USA.But that should do it for the review on the Torklift stable load suspension upgrade for up or overload springs.

I haven’t used these with my camper yet (on order) but I’m not happy with these so far. First, why doesn’t Torklift take off the metal tabs instead of making the buyer do it? Wasn’t as easy as they make it sound. Second, I wanted to have a .5 inch gap between the Torklifts and overload spring so I wouldn’t have a rough ride during normal use (recommended by users). For the front bumper, this was not possible during trimming without hitting the metal structure of the bumper. I only have a quarter inch gap in the front....hopefully it will ride OK. Why can’t Torklift manufacture the bumpers to be make/model specific? Trimming these bumpers was a royal PIA. I will post a follow up after the handling performance is evaluated. 477811

These do their job well. We tow a toyhauler, and we'll use it without bringing the toys to camp. When that happens, the tongue of the trailer is pretty heavy, then add 150 gals of fresh water (in front of the axles) and the weight is increased! I installed these on my 2015 GMC 3500HD with 2" level kit in front, and now on those trips, my truck no longer sits lower in the rear, but sits almost level. I trimmed mine down at a slight angle, as some people we talking about. And the blocks meet the overload springs flatter, and don't engage quite as quick. Airbags may have a better ride, but these feel nice and solid towing. 505322

Does not work as shipped. Have a 2014 Chevy 3500 & the blocks are to tall. They touch without any weight in bed. This makes your rear suspension feel like its been removed. I called the tech line & they said they should fit but they did not. Brand new truck totally stock. After taking them out & cutting about an inch off with a band saw they work as designed. 271910

Review from a similar TorkLift StableLoad in Vehicle Suspension


Having been in the auto/truck repair business for over 50 years, I thought this would be a good Idea so I tried it. I could have made my own but it would be a lot of cutting and drilling because it is so many pieces. I used it to add capacity so I could haul my camper that I purchased three states away and had to pick up. I used 2 of the 3 plates because there wasn’t enough room for three. It did very well like that but after I got back I added the 3rd plate figuring I could use the third one by just jacking the truck slightly before engaging. I thought all three woul be needed once the camper was full of water and gear. I am enclosing a picture of how ti drill the springs with using the vehicles own drill press (screw jack) for changing tires. I still need to test fully loaded and with all three plates in place. 560864


Comments

So far so good, I added the third plate and with grease and the air bags I can get it engaged. I also added one leaf Super Spring and VR front coils for a 3500 clone effect. I deflate the ait bags after I engage the overloads as they are too spongy. Fully loaded with built in generator and 46 gallons of water it sits about one inch higher in the back.

Hasn't been much time for me to really write a review, but I'll write one as requested. So far what I've noticed after install is the rearend feels tighter, the good kind of tight. Haven't towed with it yet that won't be for a while either, but suspect if it is already making the suspension tighter it should definetly make at least some kind of difference during heavy load situations. 176030

Product is excellent. I ordered, double checked to make sure it was right model for my truck and then wrote email back to etrailer to triple check the order. When the stableloads arrived, they would not fit my truck without modification. I have a 2012 Ram 3500. The stableloads were too wide and thus I had to modofy in order to keep my original pads along with the new stable loads to make it fit my truck. 405552

Installed StableLoads on a 2017 Ram 3500 dually that carries a 4500lb (wet) truck camper and pulls a 24' enclosed car trailer. The StableLoads are easy to engage/disengage depending on load, and have none of the issues common with airbags. In combination with a Hellwig BigWig sway bar, the truck rides well and handles well, even with the high center of gravity with the camper. 556140

Review from a similar TorkLift StableLoad in Vehicle Suspension


I have the upper and lower stableload suspension upgrades on my 2001 2500 Dodge Ram diesel pickup. I had these installed before a cross country trip with my heavy gooseneck horse trailer. There is significant improvement in handling and steering. The truck now hauls the trailer with much less stress as the weight of the trailer seems to be much better distributed. The truck bed used to sag a bit when I attached the trailer (even with factory overload springs) and now that's not happening. I believe that there is possibly less wear and tear on the rear tires as well. I am pleased with this upgrade and have recommended it to my horse hauling friends. I haven't bothered to disengage the lower stable loads so the ride is stiffer when there's no load, but it's really not an issue right now. 287508

I ordered the upper and lower Torklift overload spring kits for a 2015 Ford Super Duty F-350. The uppers are easy and simple to install. The lowers, require minimal assembly and took less than an hour to install. The lower overload springs on my truck were pre-drilled in the exact place I needed them to be, from the factory, how lucky could I get!!! The uppers are a little above the spring, probably due to the lowers raising the truck 1 1/2 inches. Shipping was fast and the boxes came in great shape, and complete. My only gripe would be the price, the two upgrades are not cheap but work great, so if you need them, bite it and get them both. 290707

These TorkLift enhancements are as they claim. Along with the TorkLift axel bump stops, these totally have completed the stabilization I was desiring. No more swaying and the leveling of my rig is where I want it with a 5,000# truck camper pulling a load. These would have received a 5-star rating if the prices were not so expensive, but they are supposed to have a lifetime warranty. 373991

Review from a similar TorkLift StableLoad in Vehicle Suspension


This is the best towing improvement item I have ever purchased. We purchased a new 2018 Ford F-250 super-crew with the 6.2 gas and had our load leveling, anti-sway hitch professionally installed to tow our 2016 28' travel trailer. We towed the trailer for 1550 miles on numerous trips and it was very uncomfortable. At first I thought it was trailer sway, but soon realized it was the truck trying to point left or right or bouncing up and down every time we hit a dip or bump in the road, no matter how slight. It was truly white knuckle driving. I searched for the problem and solutions and decided to try the TorkLift StableLoad system. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. We could tell within a few blocks from home the truck felt much more stable and on the highway it was like a different truck and trailer. We just towed the trailer 856 miles and it was an incredibly easy and relaxing drive. I love that I can engage or disengage the devices so we don't have a stiff ride when not towing. If I ever install one again I will have someone else drill the spring leafs or at least rent the tool from the manufacturer. I ruined the 2 drills they sent almost immediately by not using enough pressure and using too much drill speed. Once I realized what I was doing wrong I was able to drill the holes using a floor jack to apply pressure as others have described and drilling at the slowest speed possible. Once the holes were drilled it was very easy to assemble and install the StableLoads. 558941

Worth every penny to keep the truck stable. Without the special tool to drill the springs it was an extremely long, tiring process. I place a floor Jack under my drill to increase the pressure on the springs. That helped a lot, but still glad I only had to so it once. 423734

I would buy it again. Installed on 2016 F250 4x4 long bed 4 door Simple well engineered solution to level truck when towing or carring a heavy load. It engages the extra leaf springs without a load so the truck does not sag until it hits the springs. Install was easy, directions were not good, but I figured it out. Fit an finish was excellent. It included all required hardware which was of high quality. Nice to be able to engage and disengage as needed, may need to jack truck up to engage and disengage the product. 481881

I have no complaints with e-trailer. Price and service was very good. Torklift however shorted me some hardware and I needed to do some grinding which I felt was unwarranted for the 1,053 dollars I spent on two torklift products, Talons (camper tie downs) which needed grind to fit and removal of paint on shims. And Missing clevis pins (2 out of 4) and cheesy grade hardware on my stabile loads. I am satisfied with the function of both products and would buy them again, I am just NOT thrilled that an American product that commands a premium price was not 100% spec'd and I had to scrounge for fasteners. By the way....the packaging was intact and undamaged. 395116

Naturally, the difficult part is drilling the overload springs. They are about 9/16" thick. The picture on eTrailers shows 4 cobalt bits, but came with 2. But, it turned out to be no big deal, since I was able to drill all 4 holes with one bit. I have a slow turning antique 1/2" drill that helped; after drilling 3 holes to dimple (not all the way thru), I didn't have enough arm left to drill the last one, so I employed a floor jack to push up. Worked well. The key is stopping every 5 - 10 seconds and dip the drill tip into motor oil. This works well in lieu of cutting oil. I would make the following changes for a 2017 Super Duty instructions. Drill the hole into the spring 1-1/2" in from the tip instead of 1" per instructions, this is for the rear of the leafs, the front still is at 1". The reason is there is a taper in the thickness near the tip, causing it to not sit firmly onto the spring. I also had to cut 1/2" off of the thin-headed 3/8" bolt for the front of the springs. Even with the rear jacked up and topping out the shocks there wasn't enough space to get it in. The rear worked without cutting. I am going to look for a different clip for the the "stored" pin. I don't think these will stay on. I think instructions could be better, especially in the planning of whether to mount inside or outside the spring stack. But, most of it is okay. I have not tested with the camper, but I am 99% sure it will make hauling the truck camper much better. I tested with temporary felling wedges, so I know it will help a bunch. By the way, I have Torklift tiedowns and Fastguns and love them. 444557

This is a great product, but the bolts are marginal. It is very difficult to keep the bolts tight enough to prevent shifting. When the shift in the normal mode, they ton on the leaf springs. One bolt came loose in the stiff position and it reduced the effectiveness. 457813

Fifth wheel camper that we got in May and I pull it with a 2016 Ford F-150 4x4 supercrew and I had troubles with the trailer starting to sway at around 60 mph at times it was nerve racking. I did some research and found the torque lift stabilizer kit and installed it on my pick up. All I can say is WOW this kit took care of my sway problem 100%. We used it for the first time since installing the kit and it was trouble free and I ran around 72 mph with no problems!! I would highly recommend this kit & shipping was fast! 417920

Outstanding product. The trailer is twice as stable as it was was with the former system and much easier to set up. I would recommend it to anyone needing a leveler/stabilizer system. The added stiffness of the Torklift springload is a perfect combination. Just finished a 3000 mile trib in wind and bad weather with no issues. 527578

UPS delivered with packaging intact. L & R Wedges are wrapped separately and labeled. Hardware was contained in a sealed bag. 2 pieces were damaged, easily replaced at the hardware store. Instructions were reasonably clear, but there is room for improvement there. Installation : Installation was on a 2018 Chevy Colorado and straight forward. There is the option of installing the units inboard or outboard. Inboard installation on the Colorado would have resulted in insufficient clearance between the spare tire on the rear units, and the fuel tank on the front. Outboard installation resulted in minimal clearance with the mud flaps on the rear, and contact with the brake line and supporting bracket on the left front. Some backyard engineering with waterpump pliers was required to create adequate clearance. Use: Engaging the wedges is not possible with weight on the axle. The truck must be jacked up enough to unload the springs before rotating the wedges into position. I haven't had a chance to load up the truck and hook up the trailer. I'll provide follow-up when I do. 612376

Super happy with the hitch. Factory hitch bolts were a mother to get off, definitely need a breaker bar as mentioned in the instructions. Once the factory hitch was off going back together was a breeze. 717218

added these to 2018 f350. The light weight of truck camper was not engaging the top overload springs enough to reduce side to side sway. added these adjusted height as required. They are 1/2 inch from springs when truck empty so smoother ride when empty, but reduces squat and sway when camper loaded. worked great. 702780

These really made the difference controling the body roll with my slide in camper on my 3500 Dodge truck. More so than adding just a heavy duty sway bar but having both a sway bar and the Torklift Stable Loads made for the ultimate control of body roll. 694886

  • TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade for a 2016 Ford F-350
  • The TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade for Upper Overload Springs part # TLA7202 will not fit your 2016 Ford F-350 as they are designed for GM vehicles. For your F-350 you would indeed want to use the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade for Upper Overload Springs part # TLA7200. I called my contact at TorkLift and they informed me that the mounting brackets for part # TLA7202 are different than part # TLA7200. If you are referring to the factory rubber contact pad placed between...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 with 5,200 lb Truck Camper
  • The Torklift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade # TLA7202 is a great option for improving the handling and reducing side-to-side sway on your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali when your truck camper is attached. These will simply bolt onto each frame-mounted overload bump stop bracket on your vehicle. Drilling will not be required during installation. It's likely that with the heavy weight of the truck camper that you will need an additional enhancement to level your truck and lift it a bit off...

  • Is Trimming Required for the TorkLift StableLoad TLA7202 on a 2013 GMC Sierra 3500
  • You are going to want to trim the block down about an inch. We have seen this issue before on similar GMC trucks and if you don't trim the block down the suspension is going to feel incredibly rough. If you trim about an inch off and match the angle of the block to the spring it will work like it is supposed to.

  • Is Drilling Required to Install TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade Kit TLA7202
  • The TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade Kit # TLA7202 installs WITHOUT drilling or trimming on vehicles with factory leaf springs and an upper overload spring. The four springs install in place of your factory bump stops. Written installation instructions are linked for you.

  • Torklift Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500
  • For your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 4WD there are actually two Torklift Stableloads listed as a fit. There is the part # TLA7202 which is the upgrade for the upper overload and there is the part # TLA7310 which is the upgrade for the lower. The # TLA7310 would be what I would go with if it were my truck as you can easily connect and disconnect the system depending on if you need it or not. In the instructions for the # TLA7202 there is a section on trimming the rubber pad so that it makes...

  • Sumosprings Recommendation for 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Towing Travel Trailer
  • If your suspension is going up and down 2-3 times after hitting a bump you most likely need to replace the shocks of your truck. That will slow the rebound down quite a bit and should prevent the suspension from basically bouncing like you described. For suspension enhancement the SumoSprings kit part # SSR-207-47 will provide you with an additional 1,500 lbs of spring capacity at 50 percent compression. It will not give you additional capacity. This will greatly reduce how far the...

  • Tork Lift Stable Load Suspension Enhancement for a 2016 GMC Denali 3500
  • Tork Lift Stable Load # TLA7200 is designed for certain Ford and Dodge trucks but will not fit the 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali. For your truck you would need # TLA7202. We had a customer install them on a 2016 3500 like yours and he had no problems. We had another customer who had a 2014 model and had to trim some material off the ends of the blocks to get them to fit. So they will work and may require a bit of modification in some circumstances.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement System for 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali Dually
  • The TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade for Upper Overload Springs, # TLA7202 are the fit for your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500. They will assist in reducing side to side sway as well as porpoising, and they will reduce body roll. They will reduce the squat of your truck. For another option to consider, I recommend the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRTT35D. These springs will work in a similar way but will use your jounce stops bolt location to provide the added strength...

  • How to Reduce Bounce with Airbags on a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500
  • I do not have an exact air pressure for you to fill the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2596 on your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500. As you mentioned, you should fill them until the truck is level but if you feel the ride is too rough then you can deflate some air as this would in turn improve ride quality. The other option to help improve ride quality and reduce bouncing without deflating the airbags would be to add the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade part # TLA7202 which...

  • Will the Timbrens Provide More Support Than the TorkLift StableLoads On a 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • I am not personally a huge fan of the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrades part # TLA7310 and # TLA7202 as you have come to find out they don't always provide the most support but I am a big fan of the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TGMRCK25D that you referenced. The Timbrens will provide more support than any other option for your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 so you are most likely not going to sag with these installed which I might add is super easy just like the...
