Hello and Spring Rates
 
Hello and good day.
I am new here so hello to all of you. I have a 2005 Ram 1500 2wd Hemi. Im doing some preliminary math on a street set-up. My question is does anyone know what the stock spring rates (ball park) are for front and rear? If need be I will pull them and rate them rate them before I scale the truck, but it would be nice to know a little before I get started.

Thanks

I am going to do an aggressive street set-up. Hard to tell what the truck needs until I do some math (which is why I need the spring rates) but it is safe to say at this point the center of gravity will need to come down (lowered) and the roll stiffness (at least the front) will need to be increased. The front will also most likely benefit from more front spring rate, wider track width and more damping rate but if and how much has yet to be determined.

Thanks
