    In word no. But they will slow dow to a stop quicker with a load than without. It’s all about friction. Empty trailers are good for making time. But when there is shlt on the road forget it.

    My tacoma was only used to drive me there to transfer some funds i made in the stock market to a 3 year annuity. I think my arm, and hand is still stiff from signing so many forms

    Attempting to deweather this area on rear axle
    Using eastWood converter primer after removing a fair amount of dirt sand grease wax and some remaining loose coating
    It's supposed to turn dark black when conversion done
    Then maybe cosmoline it IDK

    Doesn't look too bad if you wired wheeled if pretty good before the rust converter. Once thats cured, you use an an oil based paint on it. Then later the cosmoline, and it should be good for a long time.

    or until the truck needs new leafs then it all comes undone LOL
    and there is much labour to be done on cleaning those 25yr old springs (made in Mexico stamp on them)
    they are not 'roasted' with failed coating but there are many crusty spots popping up
