Where can I buy coil springs that will not change the height of my truck but are a bit softer? All of the aftermarket springs I have found are made to lift or lower a truck. Progressive springs would be great. I would rather not go to my Dodge dealer for springs if I don't have to.
Thanks in advance!
They will soften up with time don't worry about that, if you try driving on very very rough surfaces that are very bumpy (keeping in mind the tires wear faster) this will help soften them a bit. Personally it's not worth the time money or sweat to change springs just because the ride isn't soft enough BUT again that is my personal opinion, truly I think stiffer springs are better because what happens when the vehicle ages with soft springs, they will effect the handling and safety of the vehicle not to mention that you would then be required to replace the springs. So stiff springs last longer and again they will soften up and you will get use to the ride, give it some time. Only thing about stiff springs in the front is the tendency for oversteer but I know dodge has revamped there front stabilizer bar since the old 1990's era, thank god.
Anyways just my 2cents and hope everything works out better for you.
