    I just bought a 2001 Dodge 2500 5.9 (gas) with a 7.5ft fisher plow. It has new socks all the way around and new coils on the front. With the plow on it drops approx 6" in the front. Would diesel coils help this and would I need new shocks? I know it would be a rougher ride but I would change them when I switch back to lawn care in the spring.

    Just get a leveling kit for it or see if you can put 3500 or 4500 springs on the front. Mine doesnt drop that much, springs should be the same regardless of diesel or gas engines.

    Actually, the springs are different in the diesels and trucks with the V-10 than those that came with the 5.9 V-8 due to the difference in weight. The diesel coils will be a little stiffer and should give you 1.5 - 2" of lift in the front of your truck.
