Sulastic Spring Hangers - any experience?

Before I push the button, and get the parts coming in advance of the spring get-ready season, I thought I'd see if anyone has installed and towed with the Sulastic rear spring shackle replacements. The main purpose is to slightly improve the empty truck ride experience. I am not thinking I will get F150 ride, just taking some of the "bite" out of the inevitable Alaskan road jolt out of the equation. Thanks in advance.

They have generally favorable reviews. I’ve done extensive searches in the past. These are the old Velva-Ride shackles originally by BF Goodrich.

Highest quality shocks will do “more”. KING, FOX or BILSTEIN. Not entry level.

Both would be better.

Most of all would be best hitch setting.

With a 350 TV an AirSafe would be better for the AS.

Maybe a set of softer progressive rear springs for the TV would help both Butts. 🥴

X2 on the hitch setting. 👍

ordered the Sulastics and four 9000 series adjustable Rancho shocks. I think an Airsafe hitch would be a fabulous isolation trick - but I am reusing the Propride I bought to help tame the F150. If I find an Alaska buyer for the Propride... who knows?

Installed; report

Installed Rancho 9000xs adjustable shocks and the Sulastic shackles. Shocks were on for a month before I got around to the Sulastics. Shocks helped some. Sulastics did what I wanted - took the bite out of the bridge abutments and eliminated rear end hop when hitting those sharp road changes.
