3rd Gen Coil Spring Level/Lift

I tried searching but couldn't find what I'm looking for.

Are there any options out there for spring replacement for a level/lift on the 3rd gens? I found springs for "02-05" but I have an 06 not sure what would be different there.

If not has anyone had custom springs made and how did that work out/where did you get it done? I plan eventually to run the CST lift kit but even there I would think springs would be better than a block for the lift.

Any opinions and input would be great. Just looking at possibility to level/lift without compromising ride quality, even though it doesn't matter much to me more to appease the wife lol.

I sure there is a way out there is somebody's brain. A front spring/shock would be great for a CST spindle setup.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, I mean how hard could it be to have a spring 2-3" longer than the stock one instead of a spacer? lol biggest thing would be making sure the loading of it could handle the weight of the truck but I mean they do it for 4WD so shouldn't be an issue there.

I'm surprised CST hasn't made one along with their lift considering the price point. But a setup that could just be used for someone wanting to level would be great.

I know I am sick of the block in mine. It rides like a friggin tank. People say that the cst spindle is the way to go. I just wish it wasnt so pricey and that stock wheels would work with them.

Stock wheels will work with a small spacer from what I have read a few people used 1/2" spacer and it worked just fine.

Does anyone know of any places that build custom springs by chance?

Just got an email back from a company that makes custom springs.

They informed me that they could make some 2.5"-3" lift springs for my truck. They said it would take a 3 week lead on the order and cost $488. A little too high IMO to warrant pulling the trigger there but apparently it can be done.

Anyone have any experience with these Coil Springs?

Products - TUFTRUCK

They have Heavy Duty and Extreme Heavy Duty P/N's TTC-1615 and TTC-1616 for our trucks and it says 1"-3" lift, maybe the TTC-1616 would level the truck on out nice without any spacers. I'd pay the little extra for that.

They aren't listed to fit Dodge here but looks like that part number just happens to fit both our trucks and older Chevy's according to TufTruck's website.

Are 4wd coils the same length? Why couldn't you just use the coils off of a 4wd truck?

djrey from your avatar pic your truck looks nice low like it is. Just curious why you want to go up with it, just like the look better, just wondering?
Any bigger pics of your truck?
