    Dirk - You need to pick up an old Buick LeSabre (grandpa car)! That just might be your dream car! My parents had one years ago.

    Helper springs (mostly used on pickup trucks) are a not a bad concept. You can have the nicer ride of a half-ton pickup truck while having the carrying capacity of a 3/4 ton pickup.

    If I needed to haul 3-4 large adults quite frequently, the Mirage would not be my vehicle of choice. Better springs in the rear would help, however. I could see the value of something that helps stiffen up the rear springs for some people.

    In my case, I seldom have passengers. I've only had one person in the back seat since owning my Mirage. My rear seats have been folded down for months now. The Mirage serves me well as is.

    I seldom have passengers aswell, but when I do, or I have my mtb in the back, it rubs as I go over speedhumps or whatever (especially with 195 tires). So these helper springs are good when I want to keep the looks and handling of wider tires, but don't want to be afraid to pop a tire.
