    So it looks like I need a small lift. Though I might see what was availAble here before ordering new. Front springs need to be for a diesel.

    I have a set from my crew cab diesel.
    They are stock 3 leave spring.
    It will sit a little higher but not really a lift.
    It will be better for loading up the truck.

    I'm pretty sure diesel trucks got normal stock springs. 2 leaf for the half tons and 3 leaf for the heavier rigs.

    Interesting. Are you able to measure the difference? Each time I've looked into replacement front springs I've found just one 2-leaf option and one 3-leaf option. :thinking:

    The stock springs on my truck are three leaf. Its a half ton truck. I'm just looking to pick it up enough to clear tire chains. Maybe 2" so far the only company that offers a specific diesel spring is Alcan. ORD is their distributor I think.
