To "soften" a vehicle of that size is almost impossible with out damaging the integrity of the springs. This is not something we can do here. Anytime you "Soften" a ride usually we would take a spring out of the pack, however due to the size of your bus doing this could seriously damage the vehicle. We therefore unfortunately cannot help you with the springs on your bus.

That is nothing more than a fear of liability.
This is why we have packs made to a smaller weight rating, with Fewer, thicker leafs.
I also can't helpbut notice that all of the newer buses here come with far fewer, but thicker leafs right from the factory.
A few of us here need to go do some leaning on Pirate 4x4. Trouble is, they would get ripped apart over there.
