Ok thanks for the info. I'll get to some adjusting! Yes I am using the last link. I had the dealer install and set everything up, they should have helped me out a little better instead of just hooking me up to get me outta there. But I didn't think about the whole loading up taking some weight off the tongue as well.

My tow rating is 8700lbs and 1600 payload.

can you post a picture hooked up where we can see the whole truck, both front and rear axles?

Is that a 2wd truck? And modifications to suspension? While it looks slammed to the suspension stops in that picture, it would help to see how the truck sits, the angle, to tell how bad it is.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.

Try using the next to the last link instead and see if that helps.

I used the Hellwig pro series helper springs on my 06 Ram 1500, but I think yours has coil springs in the rear. I also put on LT tires, beefier sidewalls, tows MUCH better. When you tighten the chains on your hitch, the rear of the truck should lift up about 3 to 4 inches, due to the weight being shifted to the front axles. Those chains will be really tight! Randy

Try researching 'Total Load Control Suspension' systems. I installed them on my Ram 1500 Sport pulling a 35' TT w WDH and it helped a lot on the extra bounce from the rear end but I do not have that kind of sag in my rig. Please re adjust your WDH that should be your focus...
