    Been searching the posts trying to figure out what is a good setup but could use some clarification.
    First my truck is way outta warranty. I"m not plowing commercial it's just for mine and my neighbors driveways.
    Here's what I'm going with Meyers ST7.5, MDII.
    01 1500

    Currently it has 021/020's. I don't mind a stiff ride and I don't want the front to sag.
    What coil setup would you think would work?
    Is there a need for timbrens?
    Should I also replace the shocks?

    I was thinking of going with 038/039 coils.

    Thanks for your help.

    ckj..... if all you are doing is a couple of driveways then you dont need to do a thing. The stock springs will hold just fine. It will drop a couple of inches however for all your doing its not a big deal at all.
