torklift stable load bumpers

Has anyone used the torklift stable load bump stops for the rear overload springs on a superduty? I have been looking at them and just want to know if i should buy them or not. I have read that getting airbags without these won't allow the factory overloads to work at all. So then the truck starts to sway. Any opinions would be great, thanks guys.

I'd still go with the airbags, those look like a bandaid and not a real fix to your problem and I would bet that you truck will ride rougher with those.

Actually, most people that use airbags have them set at around 80-90lbs. That causes the feel of riding on basketballs.

The Torklift StableLoads are designed to only engage the factory overload system when there is sufficient weight in the rear as not to affect ride quality in an unladen truck.

Unlike airbags, Torklift Stableload does not directly increase the vehicle’s load capacity. Instead, the Stableload significantly improves handling characteristics by engaging the factory overload springs earlier. In addition to dramatically reducing sway, body roll, and bucking - which have a high correlation with loss of control leading to accidents - the Stableload keeps the vehicle level

Users with airbags have been able to reduce the pressure in their airbags down to between 20-30lbs, at the cost of around 1/3 the price of airbags, and the amount of demand for them, and the rave reviews on other sites (google Stable Load, as i am not sure if it is ok to link to those forums here as it would be considered advertising) I am sure they do just what they are intended to do.
