    anyone have any input on where i can get some upgraded heavy-er duty coils for my 06 dodge CTD? like the ones 06slvrctd got for his. dosent have to be the dodge brand i guess.

    just wondering if anyone has a good hook up on a set or knows about something i dont.

    im sure the shiping will be a TON but we will see.

    the ones from the local dodge are $129 ea just for price range.


    thanks

    Is the spring rate of 5000lb for one spring or the pair?
    That seams a little extreme?

    A progressive spring is going to give you a better ride when the plow is off compared to coils that have a linear/constant spring rate.

    Hear is the spring rates for the Dodge springs you can get at your dealer.

    The only thing that is different is the part#'s might be different but the parts guy can figure it out for you.

    Just something to think about.
    Replace your tired springs and add some timbrens.

    i did look at the super coils, but im not wanting that much lift. 2 1/2" is a good bit. heck a regular 2" leveling kit makes a good diff.

    thanks for the info guys.

    the supercoils would be great if it didnt give so much lift.

    i looked at the infinant(sp) rate coils but thats big money im more in the 250 max range for $$$ ust cant see spending $600 for springs/coils

    i did look at the Lorenz 23% over but they are $400 well see what happens i guess.
