Hello,

I own a '08 Tribeca. I have a 2in lift kit front and rear, plus Motegi MR139's on 245/70/17 Hankook All Terrains.

I am looking for stiffer spring options for the rear or both rear and front. People have told me to try the new Ascent springs or struts, others have said to get Outback King Springs or Rallitek springs that are 1in taller than stock and it'll compensate for the weight difference. Has anyone ever swapped for stiffer springs? Same ride height and/or taller? It would come in handy whenever my Beca is loaded with camping and camera gear! S.O.S.

I'm new to Forums, so if you like to check out my build and have IG @expedition.tribeca

Few years late on this.... but did you ever try a stiffer spring? I am also looking to add some stiffness in the rear to compensate for towing weight and gear. Currently running 1.25" lift in the rear to stay relatively level.

aren't those rear springs pretty straightforward (in dimensions) to get stronger ones from coilovers? or use like russians - from Toyota Mark, or mitsubishi outlander heavy duty?
p.s. I am debating myself - whether to look for springs or try to buy coilovers....

I am finding it quite difficult to find the dimensions. Not really keen on removing one just to check either. I contacted sumo and king springs, they both said they have nothing to offer. It could just be that they dont have the size in the database and not keen on wanting to figure it out.
