Hey I'm wondering if the 2500 coils are the same diameter as my 1500 coils. I'm trying to figure out how to solve my front end from sagging since I have added about 200 pounds to it.

Should I just call someone like skyjacker and see what they can do? Thanks DDGETHS

Hey DDGETHS, welcome back!

I'm not positive about the 1500/2500 being the same diameter, but I'm pretty sure I've seen guys swapping them on here and DTO.
Does your TC lift replace your factory coils or are you running a spacer? I didn't look that close when we got 'em dirty. :):

I believe the 2500 springs are 2" taller than 1500 and if you really want to go stiffer you might look at the 2500 diesel springs. I think they are heavier yet.

I'm sure someone will chime in that knows for sure. :):

Talk to you later,

Hey Greg,
Yeap it is good to be back. Had a good visit with my son. Yes, my T/C lift does have a spacer. I was thinking about trying to use springs from a diesel but not sure if I needed to use lifted springs or just stock ones.. thanks

Check out http://www.jdlawhon.com He has swapped in off-road springs to gain some height back. Also, you can swap in 2500 springs into a 1500. Coil diameter is identical. The height gain is based on weight rating. See http://www.dodgeram.org/tech/specs/springs.htm for specs

Jason, any clue as to which spring I would need. I know I would have to figure out which spring I have now then go from there. Now with the lift I would have to use one of the 13 Inchers right? I should just add what I think is the added weight of everything to the factory load weight of the spring and go from there. Any clue? Thanks DDGETHS

Yeah, you will need to determine the current spring rating. Then go from there. I do not now the progressive rates of the factory coils so I could not figure the amount of lift you will get from each one. Find the taller spring with the same weight rating as you currently have and then go up one rating to acocunt for any extra weight you have added (winch, bumper, grill gaurd, etc)
