Default FINALLY LEVELD!!! With springs!!

Well i finally got sick of my 2500 sagging in front so i bought a set of heavy duty front springs with 2.5" lift and an added 5,000# of support from Tuftruck . heres the before and after pics. I went with the springs cause i like the springs alot better than the leveling kits and needed the better strentgh for my plow. Next up Bigger tires!!

Before






after:

actually the ride isn't as bad as I thought its about the same as my 06 dually so I'm used to it. I like a truck to ride like a truck though. Lol but main reason for it was cause of my snowplow.

Truck look's good sitting there with those new front springs installed. I take it you went with the TTC-1216 setup. Did the stock shocks work for ya. & did you get a re - alignment. How about any issues with the factory warranty changing these springs out. And how is your truck handling & how do you like the ride with these new springs. I can not PM you at this time with these questions. I may also go this route with the front springs .Thx

stock shocks work great as I didn't really change anything just went to different spring. Went to align it they said it was fine. Talked to dealer and they said it would not void warrenty and they were interested in where I bought it. Yes I went with the ttc-1216 setup and got it really cheap. Ride has been sacrificed some but my other trucks are a dodge dually and a ford dually so doesn't bother me. Only problem I noticed was I'm glad I have airbags cause it lifted the front a little higher than the back. So far it actually travels and steers better and I have no complaints just ordered 2 more sets for my other trucks
