08-10 overload spring

I cant seem to find the answer so Im going to ask. On my dads 06 250 he has what appears to be some type of OEM overload spring on top of the rear leafs. Was this still an option on the 08's. If so where can you get one? I cant find anything for my truck other than aftermarket stuff. Thanks

o'load spring comes with a camper package...........you can go to any spring shop and get one added or google o'load springs and there are many choices that catalog shops offer that you can bolt on yourself.
yesterday saw a truck at safeway with an 11ft lance on the back ...was surprised to see it was a chevy 2500 duramax...checked his springs and all he had was firestone airbags..no overload spring so he didn't even have a camper package...checked the weight of the camper on the tag...3883lbs...talk about an overload !!!!!!

something else to consider

Timbren overload rubber helper springs ---Free Shipping on Timbren kits...........i had firestone airbags on my last truck,but i really like these timbrens and the nice thing about them you dont need compressed air. i would have ordered for an f350 set but got the f250 set.......they would fit on the same way but maybe give you little more capacity.......maybe they are both identicle...dont know.
