another commonly used trick to prevent wind up and axle tramp is to use a reversed half leaf on top of the front half of the main leaf. Does that make sense?

Yo D!

I spent a good 15 minutes looking among the Commercial VANS etc at the wreckers.

None had the suspension that I was talked about!!

For those new to this issue. I'm looking for a Commercial VAN (Box on wheels) that has an integrated tramp rod, as part of the rear leaf spring assembly. I suspect it's something in the last 5-7 years. Could be any manufacturer. eg. Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Ford.

Might you have seen "overload springs"? A lot of commercial rigs have these: a second set of leafS that only make contact when the truck is loaded heavily. They sometimes have a bracket that surrounds the bottom leaves.
