Default Coilovers and leafs on my Sonoma?

I just bought a 1998 Sonoma and noticed that the rear seemed REALLY stiff. I looked under and noticed that it has spring packs and coilovers......is this typical?

Gross.....Oh I get it now. Seriously though, that's what I figured, but I've never seen it before and didn't know if it was something that came with stock trucks for the towing option or a kit or a booty fab.

Damn they make the ride stiff. Take a bumpy corner fast and the rear end is hopping all over making the tires break loose.

Thanks for the link. Yeah, I'll be getting rid of those soon, as well as the chrome rims and tires, and the Go Rhino chrome push bar and brush guard.
