Just find it interesting that a new truck for an existing 5er need extra spring help!

That tells me it's overloaded most likely.

Got to wonder, I figured that a Ram 3500 SRW with a 12,300 GVWRand about 4,200 payload our 2,700# pin, hitch, DW, myself and “stuff” in the in bed toolbox I would be at about 12,200#+.
Maybe part of the steering drift issue!

I have said for a while now that every new Ford needs to be bagged if you intend to carry a load. The truck suspension appears to be designed more for ride quality than load carrying.

I thought they beefed up the current models? Back in 2016 every F450 hauling a DRV had to be bagged that I spoke to at the DRV repair facility. One guy had not done the bags yet and he was NOT happy with his ride.

Soft Friday suspension......sounds like transit van I drive at work to a degree. I usually figured it was due to the LOOOOOONG rear overhang behind rear axle. Way softer than the sprinters we had. About literal usefull 2000 lbs less payload for same gvwr/25 series vans.
