If anyone is interested in a whole bunch of BOB pics without having to wade through pages of this thread, check out the video below. I keep getting requests to put pictures together like this and finally got around to it. Enjoy!

I ordered 3,500 springs and went about installing them. The 2,000 lb springs were easy to remove since they were so compressed, but the 3,500 springs were a beast to install. I wound up getting them close, then using a clamp to get them almost all the way in, and finally prying them into place with a screwdriver:

3,500 spring on the left (part # A00101-5500D - sold individually by timbren retailers) and the 2,000 spring on the right

Where did you find the 3,500 springs? I googled that part number and didn't find much. Looked at etrailer ect... but only could find axles not individual springs.

I called timbren and told them I wanted to upgrade from my 1 tonne HD to the 3,500 springs. Timbren wanted me to send them an email explaining what I was wanting to do, show pictures of how I mounted the axles ect... before they would sell me upgraded springs.

I had the same problem. No one lists them. I called the same place I ordered my axle from (suspension connection) and they were able to special order them for me.
