    The Dodge should have a straight axle front end in it, just replace the coil springs with something heavier! I had the same problem with my 2001 2500 Sport when we put the V-Plow on it. It made a nite and day difference and wasn't too expensive, your other option is timbrins or some form of load booster!

    Welcome to plowsite. I would agree that you should investigate Timbren's or some other form of load booster.

    You can get new springs at your dealer fairly cheep. The 2500 with plow group uses a #38 & #39 coil spring, or you can get an even heaver spring if you wish.
    Tell them you need new springs for a 2500 #38 & #39

    They are easy to install your self.
    You will not need a spring compressor ether. hint- loosen the sway-bar.

    Take look at this thread it should answer any questions you may have.http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=11316&highlight=springs
