    2500 leaf springs

    Sorry pal, all 1500 and some light duty 2500 had 2 1/2" wide reaf springs while the 2500 HD and 3500's have 3" wide leafs. You cannot change the springs without also changing your rear shakles, front and rear spring hangers (which are rivited to the frame). If you can find a late model 2500 in the junk yard, you may get lucky for the parts. But good luck, I have only seen two stripped Dodges in the past 3 years.

    Why not put an add-a-leaf in your rear leafs? this will give you additional payload with a firmer ride. check out pavementsucks.com pirate4x4.com for info or deals.

    Hope that I helped you out
