I recently aquired a pair of front coil springs form a 00' ram 2500 4x4
(#037 coils) to install on my 99'ram 1500 4x4 to gain a few more inches of
lift. Any one know if this will present any problems before I get started
Chances are it won't lift it any but will make it ride a little stiffer. Are
you sure they are both #37's? Usually the left side is rated 200 lbs heavier
than the right side.
Stuff it Roy... <BG>
If I remember, both the stock spring from my '99 were the same. I know on
1500's, the driver's side was rated higher, but the HD trucks used the same
I think it will give him some lift, since the stiffer spring won't compress
as much. However, if I remember, this guy already has 2" coil spacers, and
is looking to add more lift with the springs. That's going to negatively
(no pun intended) impact his caster angle, probably beyond what the
adjusters can deal with. Most 3" lift kits come with longer lower link arms
to offset this.
It is going to be less expensive to buy 3" skyjacker lift coils then the
2500 ram coils. I also will get new lower link arms later on. Will the new
lower arms be all I need to set the pinion and caster angles back to
factory setting? Thanks again for the info.
