Sulastic Rubber Springs?

Search of the forum turned up nothing. These were highly recommended by the local Off-Road Shop to help resolve the road vibration on my 2007 Silverado Classic 4WD CCSB LBZ. Anyone ever hear of these. Website is under the first word, Sulastic.

I heard these were similar to the old Velvet Rides. Decided to give em' a try. Installing this Saturday, the 18th.

Hello, Let us know how the install goes, and if the ride quality is improved, also have your camera along so we can see too...Thanks,
Sir-Col

so these shackle looking things is a spring loaded shackle? so when the leaf travels so does this "shackle". seems to make sense. im also interested in how this performs as my the rear of my truck seems like to like bounce.


**edit: wow 300+ bucks?! damn ....still interested to see how they ride.

Did anyone notice that they are so confident in their system that they warrantee them for a full year! Wow, thatís confidence. I also watched the video which didn't show any real vehicles, just two cute fictional animated cars. According to the video they were both leaf sprung. They should have expressed that fact to the animator because they kept showing coils on the Willy's. I would like to thank Marblejunkie for being the guinea pig on this product, but I'm quite skeptical. I hope you can return them if they aren't as advertised or that they are inexpensive. Good Luck

i was also annoyed from that video. wtf is it good for? its like using the disney movie "Cars" to demonstrate your company makes hi performance parts ... stupid. i was hoping to see some real trucks or cars. i guess we'll see when marble gets his stuff on.

Yeah, I thought the video was kindof cheesy myself but I am going on the word of the tech who sold them to me at the Off-Road Shop. The second video on the site actually shows the real spring in action and it made sense to me. I'll let you guys know after my wife drives it, the "acid test" so to speak.
