yea - he got a good deal on the set of axles so that's what he went with. He does plan on upgrading both ends - probably 14/14 set-up.

Ok here she sit under her own weight but we are trying to figure out what spring rates we need - so if you have an idea please post up.
Running 250 over 350 we ended up 2" to high for ride height with zero preload. Sitting 2 guys on the nose = about 500lbs got us about a 1/2" more - so way too much spring. We took off the 350 and just having the 250 preloaded with 2-3/4" we could get the correct ride height. So we are thinking either 100/250 or 150/250. Any suggestions?
Here are a few pics -
2" too high -


Here it is sitting at the correct height - with about 5" of up travel.

I'm running 200 over 250 and I have a whole lot more weight on the nose of mine. You might try 150 over 250.

Mine's a little soft, that's how I like it.

His is a double cab............ those are a lot heavier up front than the extra and standard cabs......... You might want to go even lighter than 150 over 250, maybe 150 over 200.......... it'll need to have 200 over 500 on the drivers side though with Chandler driving!

LOL! naw if anything we'll need the pass side frimed up for my fat ass.
Yea maybe we could go 100/250....just not sure. We would like to keep the 250 on the bottom - even though they are new they are not perfect and we probably wouldn't be able to trade them out. We are hoping we'll be able to trade out the 350 for 100 or 150 - should I flip a coin

Depends on how much the front clip is going to weigh?........ my coils only sagged/lost about 1/2" after they broke in.......... and I think that with the diet you put that thing on it'll ride nicer with a lighter spring.

edit: I have been playing with the idea of putting 300's in place of the bottom 250's to stiffen it up for "go fast"...... but my 2.7 doesn't like to cooperate with that idea!

I'm guessing at around 400-500lbs more sprung weight to the rig - so split the difference.

I didn't see what spring LENGTHS you are running?

Just run a shorter top spring. 2" shorter spring will drop it 2".
I wouldn't drop the rate much.

Also, if you tell us how much each spring compressed from free height, we can give you a pretty good idea of your sprung weight, and then how much more or less each different rate will compress.

You are kidding right? A 2" shorter top spring at the same rate will be the same ride height with the same preload - which in this case is zero. Don't plan on running the set-up with a 2" gap between the spring and the preload ring. - I must be missing what you are saying.
With just the one 350 lb spring it is compressed 2-3/4" it is a 16" length spring.

He's right, think about this Bob....... if the preload is zero (coil adjuster is bottomed out with no threads exposed) then you put a 2" shorter spring in the place of the top spring, all you will do is lower the truck 2".

I have 4" of threads exposed above my top adjuster because nobody made springs longer than 16" when I built my truck, so I'm running 2 16" springs on a 17" coilover with the adjuster spun down....... your's is the opposite right now.

Looking at the pics again......... you are running dual rate's with a center stop ring........... so my theory and my setup doesn't apply, as I have no center stop on mine, the 2 springs just ride on top of each other with the coil separator between them......... it'd work on mine.
