is your truck a 4 banger or a v6?

- if it is a 4 banger, then you could buy a used pair of v6 springs off one of the guys on here. the v6 springs should make the truck sit about 3/4" - 1" higher.

- another option you have would be to buy 2 of the belltech spring spacers and install one on each side, on top of the factory springs. these would raise the truck about 1" no matter if it is a 4 or v6.

- last you could go and buy a true lift spring, or lift spindle. I believe it fab tech that make a 2" lift spindle, and 2" lift spring.

how much lift did you want to get out of the front? and also you will need a new alignment after you lift the front.

so in that case, id install a set of stock v6 springs, and if those still dont give you enough lift, add the spring spacers, one to each side.
