    My 2003 2500 has just rolled 160,000 miles, its had a plow on it since day 1... My question is, when I put my 2007 and the 2003 next to each other the 2007 is almost 2 inches higher.. (same size tires)... And the ride of the 2003 seems to be getting worse and worse... Also before the 2003 with the plow off would not sit on the timbrens, now with the plow off its riding on them... Do the coil springs up front wear out and compress?

    yes do you have spring coil on that? They get age and become weak. Time for new spring.

    Ya the springs well wear out over time, we replaced the springs in both of our Dodge diesels with the heaviest spring available and have not had any other problems since then!

    Springs do wear out over time from compression and tension. Order up a new set of HD Dodge springs and stick them in there. :cool:

    You wouldn't happen to have the part number for those springs would you?? The parts guy at my dealer is an idiot, and is constently ordering me the wrong parts.
