Dramatically thicker!



Enough playing with spring mounts for now, moving on to test-fitting the under-braces. The driver's side looks like it should be fairly easy, but the passenger side is looking problematic at best.
I held one in place with my left hand, while taking pics with my right. First 4 are driver's side:


'06 GMC C2500HD RCLB gasser 4.10:1, 4L80E, custom camshaft
'84 Trans Am 6.2 diesel, 700R-4, custom Class-3 receiver
'69 F350 dually. GM 6.2 diesel, turbo, 700R-4, NP208 all pending.

New springs arrived!
First pic is the new spring on the new mount with the new airbag, beside the stock rubber isolator that goes on the top of the spring, between spring and car:



Second is stock isolator on stock spring with new airbag:



Third is stock isolator on new spring with new airbag:

I wish I had the pictures of my brother's Toyota Corolla ,and the 15K hitch he welded up under it. He pulled a small airplane around town with it, craziest thing you'd want to see, surprised he's still alive. Thankfully he only pulled it from the airport to the house, but all he had to do is ask to borrow my truck?

World's first ever!
Okay, the stock springs are in, with the airbags at 35 psi, the trailer is 4500#, so pin should be 1500, but I think it's more like 1000.
