On some calls with customers, the question comes up does my Dodge pickup have overload springs? A couple things you'll want to know in order to answer that question.

Q: What are Overload Springs?

A; Overload springs help keep the back end of your truck from dragging. One spring supports the weight while the other keeps the back end up.

Q: How do I know if I have them?

The tow package for any Dodge will include an upgraded set of overload springs installed in the back - also known as rear leaf springs. The springs will be on the back of the truck and tucked just above the axle and underneath the frame of the bed. They will sit above the normal spring on the back of your Dodge truck where the axle sits and there will be two springs here that will allow you to know that an overload spring has been installed.
