Where is a good place to get springs? I do mostly street driving and am thinking of progressive rate-type for the front, and just new leafs for the rear...any ideas? Mine are shot. I just put on new shocks, and you can really tell that the springs have had it.

I know that Performance Products has Bilstein springs, but i don't know if that is the best place. They look like really good springs, but I haven't checked any prices or anything.

If everybody is different, how can anyone be normal?

Hey Tommy,

This is the perfect excuse for a small lift kit. 1.5"-2". A low cost way to go is an add-a-leaf or Warrior shackles in the rear and the Rough Country 1.5" "leveling" coils in the front. I did mine about a month ago and with the 31's it looks great. Rides much better also.

Best regards.
