      So I figured its the coil springs (17 years old) so I bought moog springs cc870 .Before they were put on, they were 13 inches long which is 3 inches longer than stock...I paid a guy $150 to put them on, and now the trunk sags EVEN more by 1/4 inch. Thats right. I put new moog on there and it dropped another 1/4 inch. I measured from ground to bottom of fender before I left and after on flat ground in garage.

      NOw my question is , would the 4x4 moog cc868 be even longer? I need something longer to raise the front about 1-2 inches to be level .

      You might consider spring spacers?

      i would check the compression and weight ratings.. length doesnt really mean anything if its a softer spring then factory

      my front end has been sagging for years , the doc says live with it. in your case try springs from a 3/4 or 1-ton truck or air shocks.
