The van came with single leaf fiberglass springs in the rear. As you can see by the before pictures, they couldn't cut the mustard. I took two sets of three leaf steel springs and merged them to make one set of five leaf springs. I cut the loops off the main leaves of one set and used them as the secondary leaves then just doubled up the middle leaves. The side view shots are deceptive, the front wheels are not on the garage apron so both pictures show the van tipped forward a little more than usual.
