    I got timbrens for my 98 ram at www.truckspring.com They were by far the lowest price I found. About $40 less than everywhere else.

    I priced mine out on Strengle Bros on the internet. Then I took the price to a local truck parts dealer to give them the business. That way if there is a problem you have a local person to deal with. I think I paid $160.00 all said and done.

    Forget the bump stops for your 1500. go to your local dodge dealer and order new front springs #38 #39 ,the #39 goes in the drivers side. you can get stiffer ones too ,from $55 to $60 per spring, You can install them your self with hand tools, it should take you an hour or two and your done.
    I have done this with my 3/4 ton I used the springs for a 1 ton oil burner, she Carrys an 8.2 boss V plow and when I raise the plow the truck drops only 2 1/2 inches and it never bottoms out.
    There are postings (in the dodge forum) (try an search)that walk you thought changing the springs step by step.
    my $0.02 is you should get the stiffer springs and fix the problem right.

    The 02-04 1500's don't have coil springs they have torsion bars, so cranking the bars and adding Timbrens is about the only option.

    I just bought this truck new in Feb. so getting a different truck really isnt an option. Im only looking to do a max of 10 driveways a year. This year im only doing my house and fiances, maybe helping a few people out here and there to get some practice before i get customers.
