Looking for info / experiences from people who have used Sulastic shackles.

I have a 2012 F-350 single rear wheel cab and chassis in the fleet with a light aluminum flat bed.

Ride and handling loaded is great.

Empty in pickup truck grocery getter run around mode it’s a bit of a lumber wagon.

Yup I know c&c rear suspension is designed for heavier body/higher loaded duty cycles vs pickup truck. I enjoy the squat free camper hauling and towing...

Thinking of ordering some Sulastic shackles for it and the enclosed garage trailer.

Thanks

The best $300 I spend on my truck.
They will not make dually riding like a Caddy, but I no longer am scared with driving empty truck over street covers.

The Sulastic has a mechanical stop when a heavy load is applied.

I have found that my fifth wheel has enough load that the Sulastic is on the mechanical stop.

But the Sulastic works fantastic when the trailer is not attached.
