The rear is def the soft spot in the suspension. With any lift -- Traxda or Journey -- it becomes even more obvious that the rear wants to squat when loaded. If you're loaded consistently / most of the time, heavier duty springs make sense. Otherwise, airbags are inexpensive and accomplish the reduction of squat (but not the lift.)The Van looks great! So the picture is with rear springs only? Nothing up front yet? I'm considering the journeys kit but I'd rather improve my rear springs and just get spacers for the front. My wife is actually into the idea because of Minnesnowta winters. I'm not sure if you can just by front spacers only - maybe springs all around is the way to go.
