Thinking about Swapping 1/2 ton leaf springs with 3/4
Well since the 'dodge lean' hit my truck (when driver side sags because of fuel tank/battery/driver) Im thinking about swapping out my 1/2ton leaf springs and coil springs with ones from a 3/4. My room mate is parting out his 3/4 ton and told me the stuff is mine if I want.
But I have a few question (I checked and could not find answers using search feature).
1) Will leaf springs from a 3/4 ton bolt up on my 1/2 ton?
2) Whats the difference in ride height between the 1/2 & 3/4? (Leaf Spring and Coil). I have a Lift and Im curious how much lift im gonna lose, I may just put the add a leafs on the 3/4's if they bolt up, ill just be sure to swap the driver/pass side.

Man, this has been discussed many times in here. No, they won't bolt on because the 3/4-1-ton leaf springs are a good 1/2" wider than the 1500 leaf springs. If your buddy is parting his truck out you could torch the hangers off his truck and bolt or weld them onto yours, but it would be a lot of work. Getting new springs would be less hassle.
