May want to use these if they are overload springs.

Yes,a little. Don't loose the ball bearings. If one is missing you can substitute a front ball from an old bearing. They will also make a little smother ride.

Jack,

Are these two different sets, or do they go together? I have no idea how they mount. I think they would be useful on my depot hack.

Here's a picture from elsewhere on the forum showing how they mount:

Thanks...I assume one set is the front and the other is the back. The front set on mine has the mounting holes on the perch end welded up for some reason.

Maybe the perch holes were damaged or worn out and someone started to repair but never finished?

Probably......am I right about the rear ones, because that's where I really need them. Mines a depot hack, and with any weight, it will sit lower than I like.

These are more like anti roll than overload. KGB

I guess you'll find out how they work when the fat lady sings....or rides in the back :-)
