    LMC has them. there a rip off though. id consider maybe going to like a 2'' lift spring or something of that nature.

    stock??

    You can often get "stock" replacement springs brand new from many junkyards..they often carry a line of new parts like springs,bumpers,gas tanks,heater cores,etc..J.C. Whitney sells them too..along with "lift kit" springs,which are often better quality than the "cheapo" ones sold as stock replacements..I've bought some very decent ones from one junkyard that sells new ones,they are made in Canada!..I'd be leery of any made overseas...:crazy:

    might just need to check the shock travle. but that would be a good idea for springs over stockers.
