      What are "h and r springs"?
      If you don't get help here, try posting in 5th gen mod section, or suspension section.

      Have you found an answer to this issue? If you have an H&R springs installed on your explorer, it will sag and the hitch may hit the ground. Don't worry, H&R springs give a little more spring rate to help when towing. It keeps the rear from sagging too much. Check the hitch and tow accessories you're using. I have Blue Ox, by the way.
