This goes out to the people with lowering springs that use their box like a truck. Do you scrape or bottom out with weight in the back?

I go camping a lot and after I load my car, the rear of the car drops about 1 1/2 inches with the stock suspension. I pack a cooler with ice and food, tent, cookware and enough firewood that lasts about two nights. I want to get the NF210 lowering springs but I'm worried I'm going to sag way too much with my camping stuff.

I've had a few sets of springs, and in my experience you want to make sure you get a progressive rear spring like the NF210 to minimize sag. I'm running them on my xB right now, and I can load up the car (four adults plus plenty of stuff in the back) with no problems.

Look into Air Lilt helper bags. I used them for years on my Odyssey to help balance the load since I carried a couple hundred pounds of product around 3 times a week. Basically a small air bag that fits inside the spring and lets you carry more load in the rear without bottoming out.

I have TRD's. I load up 300-400 pound of water softener salt in the back. You can definitely see that it's low in the back, but I've never bottomed out.
