Hello. You cannot use these springs on your car. You may need to talk to the company that sells the mobility lift to see if they have a solution for you since it is very common to have these lifts installed in this car. You might find the installation of the system to be too low to the ground, or you are not lifting it high enough. The car normally can handle a 3500-pound trailer without a problem. If you need help, an expert from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect your suspension system.
