    Just took my truck in for service, was getting some pretty weird tire wear on my steers. Suspension specialist says that my front springs are composite and he can’t get those anymore. I’m having them convert it to the regular metal leaf springs. Is there a big difference in ride quality? What are the benefits of composite? Truck is a ‘97 KW t600. Thanks in advance.
