Default 2500 springs ?

Hey guys I found a pair of front springs off a 96 ram 2500 gas 360 and was wondering if these would give any lift to my truck at all?

Alright thanks and he said the truck had 116k miles before replacing. He said he replaced them with longer springs to help fit his 35's along with a steel front bumper and hitch. Should these still be fine or will they sag?

Sounds like lift springs. You don't won't those. You would want the the stock gas springs if you want to level.

They are stock springs, he put in a longer spring on his current ride. I'm just afraid they might be sagging because of age. They're $20 so if they are its not a problem.

Oh ok he's replacing his springs.

Yep I would grab them up reall quick. Those springs at identical to to the ore springs which come from factory with a 2in lift. Or something along those lines.

20 bucks is a still

If the springs came off a 96 truck, then they have long sense settled in and wont sag if you put them on your truck.
For $20. dollars that's a good deal.

Hey guys I'll be omw to get the springs here shortly and I cant wait to put them on. While I'm at it I figured I'd go ahead and replace the 15 y/o front shocks. I've been looking at these http://www.summitracing.com/search/d...t&autoview=SKU. My question now is which would be the correct one and are they any good?

I'm not really seeing any difference between the two...... IS there any difference? Valving? Something?
