I cut 3/4 off each rear coil yesterday and I think I put them back in on the wrong side. Can anyone tell me by part numbers what side is what?

Passenger Rear I have 801AB
Driver Rear I have 802AB

Thanks for the help,

You got it right!

For crew cab:

Driver 802AB (purple tag)
Passenger 801AB (green tag)

Driver spring should have been roughly 1/2 inch longer.

How much drop did you end up with? I cut 1.5 coils on my quad cab (different springs) and only ended up with about 3/4" to 1" of drop... I used RT springs (about same overall length as my stock QC springs) and cut them. If you just swapped to the RT springs you'd probably drop an inch right off the bat.

EDIT: Do you have any pics of your springs?

snrusnak,

I got 1.00" to 1.125" with the 3/4 coil cut. I was really surprised how much better it look with only that little. Once I get finished washing and rotating tires I'll through out some before and after.

Here are the pictures of the driver side coil after cutting. It seems to fit back into the rubber pad pretty well. I did not get pictures of the pass. side.

Looks like you lost about half of the contact area with the spring perch. I'd suggest you look at getting some RT springs, even if you cut them like I did they will give much more contact.

I agree even with less than 1" of drop on mine it made a huge difference.
