Wow, that wagon was a sagin'! Was that before or after the suspension "tried" to level it out? That must have been nearly 1,000 lbs in there!

Good one.

I believe I read that DK's SLS was needing repair and that's why the rear sagged with the 617.

Here's the largest load I've seen in a TD, and Paul said the SLS lifted it just fine:

About three years ago we went to the Co-op in the wagon and hauled home the following:
1 - 20' gate
1 - 16' gate
8 - 50# bags of grass seed
4 - 50# bags of range cubes

All that and, 3 50# dogs, 2 200+# humans....

...she groaned and squeaked but lifted it all.

I once put an entire Alfa Romeo 1300cc 4-cyl, the matching transmission and a whole host of other Alfa parts (radiator, etc) in the back of my 300D:
