I have a 21' Triton...my truck barely squats. What's up with all your squat with the boat? Boats aren't that heavy.

Nice Bullet, though!!

Cheap and great fix. HELPER springs. Hellwig or stuff at your local Auto store for $50

If you are already level then a few options:

1. Airbags, empty when unloaded and should not notice
2. Stiffer springs, will notice firmer ride
3. Lift rear, will add rake to be level when towing, either shackles or block

Not sure why your truck is squatting so badly with just a bass boat.
I have a Triton bass boat and a Proline 22' center console with little dropping.
I recently replaced the weak stock springs on mine with O.M.E. + 2.25" springs.
Huge difference in load capacity.
But now after a couple thousand miles the spring bushings are a bit noisy.

It's not the boat, it's the weight of all the dead bodies in the bed that's causing it to squat.
woops just saw this. Sounds like you just have it loaded. (not a boat issue). But the point still stands, move weight from the bed to over the trailer axles would be a simple thing. Else increase loading capacity of the truck (already pretty highly rated load capacity, so if you up the suspension you want to be sure it still stops in time, etc, with that much weight).

Helper springs. Airbags. Custom leaf pack to preload.
or
Reduce the load.

I have 3" blocks , Toytec +2 shackles and O.M.E. + 2.25" springs.
You can safely assume that the ride is a bit stiffer over stock.


How do the OME ride? Did you get the 2.25 lift and did you use poly bushings?

Sorry for hijack, OP
