    I put them on last year before the season. I have a 2006 2500 Cummins. Worked great, leveled out the truck and the front end only dips down about an inch when I raise the plow. Last season I had a Boss 8'2" vee. This season I have upgraded to a 9'2" Poly Vee XT, same thing the front end only dips about an inch. Hope this helps you.

    It's about time! I thought I was the only one.

    Super Coils are bad @$$. They carry my Cummins and 1000 pound Boss Vee like they were nothing.

    First thing anyone with a plow ought to buy.

    I imagine this causes a stiffer ride while the plow is not attached? Anyone think the Timbrens might be a better option? How much stiffer are these coils?

    Ive got a heavy plow, a heavy engine and a heavy transmission and a quad cab.

    Yes, it's a stiffer spring, but they improved the stance, ride and load handling capabilitys of the truck dramatically.

    You probably would not like the ride. Me, I could give a s*** about the ride. That monster hanging off the front of my truck has broken 2 sets of coils, one was Dodge's heaviest set, and the other were an after market set made by Moog for a CDL straight truck.

    The supercoils raised my truck up about 2.5 inches which leveled out the front end with the rear. The ride is a little stiffer but not enough that it should stop you from buying the springs. I had the timbrens on before the springs and the truck noticeble dropped down several inches when you raised the plow. I would recommend the coils over the timbrens after using both. Hope this helps.

    i dont care about he ride i have air lift air bags in the back that raise it up a few inches so i was thinking of going with the one that lifted it up a little more. that would level out my truck. Did anyone have problems with their trailing arms, like the front axle getting pulled back a little?
