    Hi MSC,
    Are those Skyjacker coils you have on the front? I want to get them for my truck in the spring.

    Those are the Skyjacker springs. Book says they are 2.5" lift.
    They are pretty close to that.
    I figure they picked the truck up about 2"
    When I put the plow on and pick it up this is what it looks like.
    Front end drops about 1". Seemed like a better idea than a leveling kit because you have to take the same stuff apart to do either job. And they are the same money as the leveling kit.
    Just my opinion.

    The truck is a 3/4 ton 2500 with a diesel.
    If these springs can handle that, I think they will do just fine in a 1/2 ton.
