    Will Boobies make me happy

    This will not work on 06 and up trucks. That is a enclose unit.

    One little things that has annoyed me about my truck is when ever I go over large bump or dip in the road is the pedal spring is to weak and I will end up "burping" the throttle. To remedy this problem I went to the local hardware store and bought a stiffer spring. The spring that I bought was 3/4" x 2 7/16' x .110

    Here you can see a difference between the factory spring and the new stiffer spring. Factory spring is on top and the newer spring is on the bottom

    You will probably need a set of needle nose pliers to be able to bend the top hook on both the factory spring and the new spring. This makes it alot easier to remove and replace the springs. The top hook goes through a hole and the bottom hook fits in a groove on the side of the accelerator pedal.

    Once the top hook is bent you can use the needle nose to pull the top
    out of the hole. You might have to bend or twist the bottom hook a little to get it to slide out of the groove that it sets in.

    When I replaced the spring I started at the top and put the top hook in first and then slid the bottom hook on. It slid one pretty easy but you might have to give it a little tug with the pliers.

    New spring on(sorry for the blurry picture)
