    Progressive vs. Linear springs

    Hey fellas, I wanted to know what your thoughts were as a consensus of progressive rate springs. I have the Icon 3” lift but when loaded down it might only be an 1 1/2” in some cases. Therefor I’ve compensated, (insert joke here) with some helper airbags. I now consider moving to a Dobinsons...
