    Hi. Do you have the snow plow prep package? I have a 2001 and I thought I had the SPPrep but I don't. My passenger side coil spring has a tag that says 039 and the driver's says 046. I'm under the impression the pass. side would be a 046 and dr/side an 047 if it came w/ the SPPrep.
    I'm getting a heavyup at a truck spring shop because I need the lift for some tires I bought that are rubbing but I plowed the last two years w/out the HD springs and didn't have a problem.
    I would have gotten the heavier springs eventually because I don't wanna put any unnecessary wear and tear on the front end. I'll treat IT nice and it'll treat ME nice.

    I found out what Timbrens are...http://www.timbren.com/

    Went to google and typed in "Timbren". How much do they typically run for a truck? Thanks again! :D

    So do I only need them for the front? What do they do to the ride of the truck?

    they will stiffen up the ride a bit because they are essentially a longer bumpstop that makes contact with the axle 100% of the time

    On the Dodge they dont make contact all the time. I put the stiffer springs in mine along with the timbrens, huge difference with the plow off I dont even know they are there.
