Amtech Springs??

Ok guys, I was just reading in my new Diesel World magazine about a company called Amtech Springs... They make a leaf spring with opposing pressure... It is kind of like an add a leaf, but they claim to actually make the ride softer (my ulitmate goal) Has anybody seen these or used them??? Just wondering if they could possibly help with the stiff ride that I have now??? Thanks guys..

Amtech Springs makes a product called RollGuard. The is a counter spring but does not soften the ride. It actually stiffens it. It is meant to prevent rollover for SUV's, Trucks, some minivans. I have one on my truck and it absolutely cannot bounce or flip in a turn. Their website is PlaceHolder for amtechsprings.net

good luck

That magazine is wrong. My father owns Amtech and they go to a lot of races where they set up a booth and a test track where the public can drive a truck without the Rollguard and then drive one with it. It is a really big difference. Not only is the ride a bit stiffer the vehicle is stabilized with no side sway at all. If you are looking to soften the ride then this is not the product you want. The springs are thicker then most stock springs. It will also raise most trucks in the rear by about an inch or 2 depending on how you install it.
