    I recently purchased a Peterbilt 382 single axle. I drive over some of the worst roads in Los Angeles and tow a very lightweight trailer. Are there any options for leaf spring replacement to help soften the ride? Its to the point that the doors will open if I hit a gnarly bump. Any help is appreciated

    They have rough roads in California?????Lol

    Air ride rear? Air ride cab? Air ride seat?

    New steer springs will only make it stiffer most likely. Air down tires can help if your light load up to say 25% lower of max.

    New shocks may help some or might not, depends on the feel.

    New quality seat will probably help the most if its the fatique that hits you.
