What lb springs did you order? The 600lb springs on my girls truck is still pretty soft so we're gonna try 650 or 700lb

We had 12" coils and I had to crank them down a shit ton for a good ride height, but then again, they were 500lb springs.

The 14" coils are really nice but because of the raised spring cup, you need to compress them a little bit for them to fit, about half an inch.

I have 650# springs and had to loosen the passenger side collar to combat the lean. Im still 1/2" higher on the passemger side. That said, I drive with no swaybar and it's all good.

600lb will definitely lower you compared to 700lb. How low do you want to be? How long are your 700lb springs right now, 14"?

yes, the coils i have now are 700lb 14's, they have always seemed a little stiff even with no preload. i would like my ride height to be a inch or so lower.
