I have the same thing happening to my left spring, been shedding leafs for almost a year now. Rock auto has the best price on heavy duty springs that I’ve found. Injection pump went on mine last Friday, so Springs are going to have to wait for a little longer.

Mader,

  We have the HD springs on all our trucks with airbags. Used to break spring until we started using bags.

Good to know about springs seems no air bag setup works with a gooseneck...but I'm guessing my torch and welder can fix that....

Our bags works with goose neck/5 wheel the best. We just bump the air up a bit. With no trailer we use enough air to keep it off the overloads. One tip, weld the brackets to the frame, bolts will not stay tight.

Friend whom owns RV dealer said they stick airbag kits on goose neck equiped trucks all the time.  Says it does smooth out ride quite nice and elim sag.  Not sure I think worth the money.  I always feel like a loaded truck should squat a bit.  Filling bags up to level it I figure is pushing wt onto the frt of the truck.  Right?  0...ugh

It's hauling water home at 450 gallons or bouncing a cross back country with welder tools and water that breaks stuff I think.... Air bags would help in those situations id go heavier springs but I drive so many miles empty too so hate to lose ride.

I don't think it would put that much more weight on the front...ball only sits 3inches forward of axle center...

We have airlift springs on our 2500 makes pulling the gooseneck horse trailer a lot nicer. Air up when hauling dump pressure when empty.

No spare chain!? I learned a few years ago to carry 1 or 2 extra chains. Seems like you trash a chain 5 minutes after you start cutting and when your furthest away from the garage.

Nope thought I had a file....wrong...

Rained and warm last night. And 6 inches of snowpack don't go together customers drive gains 300 feet in the 1/4 mile chains were needed to get up...to more time to get up the drive than finish....

When you have a break that close to the axle we quite often get away with "V"ing them and welding with stainless rod.  I have several on our Landcruised "beater" that have survived quite a while.  Even better if you have enough broken pieces to join them across the centrebolt hole.  But we don't get that cold white stuff which might make a difference to surviving.

I haul 450 gallon of water 2x a week bad springs would not survive....
