Default Cant find parts

Hi, I've got the luck(and annoyance) of having a very rare engine/drive/trim/body combo that has been really complicating finding parts. I have had my truck since 2003 and its suspension is starting to show signs of age and I've replaced everything on it so far except one thing, the front IFS springs. The front is sagged about 2-3 inches below where it should be and there is no way to me to get it back to where it needs to be because torsion keys pre-load and I'm not interested in getting a lift or experiencing a hash ride and in the worst case a snapped torsion bar. The truck is a 1500 laramie with the 360 magnum in the quad cab style with 4WD. Any help would be welcome thanks.

Someone here should be able to tell you, if not you should be able to get it from a dealer.

The part sites I am searching show multiple bars....10 different codes for the left bar and 9 different codes for the right bar. And they all have different part numbers. Very odd.

You may be able to send for your BUILD SHEET & it will have the codes for every part on your Ram by entering your VIN #
You will find it under Equipment Listing under Your Vehicle on the left of the page

http://www.ramtrucks.com/webselfservice/ram/

I believe you can d/l it to your computer, get it as a FAX, email, or have them snail mail it to you
mine was close to 3 pages long
