    They are mono. I ran them for a few years,then switched to steel, when XII had them.

    I had no problems with the mono leafs.

    We still offer the composite mono-leaf springs. The steal springs were discontinued when the company that was making them sold out and the new company didn't want to deal with it. Still on the back burner to get another company in the future, but no time frame yet.

    If you go to our site, you'll "see" the monos, but you won't have an option to buy them. We have been filling back orders and finally got caught up on those. Once our "stock" arrives, you'll see an option to buy them again. For now, if you are interested in getting a set, you can PM us and we'll let you know when they arrive for purchase.

    I don't know about the load capacity...just that the difference between spring over axle and spring under axle and the leaf spring is more arched or less arched is what gives it lowered stance. I think the load capacity would be the same, but I don't know that for a fact.
