My build has stalled and I could use a little PBB help before I get caught under someone's pickup at home depot :laughing:

My 04 1500 4wd was modified by the PO with some BGTL banana leaf springs, now I need load carrying capacity and hoping to use 2500 or 3500 4wd springs.
Looking for:
1 spring width
2 spring length, center to center
3 front bolt to center pin
4 distance from top of spring plate to bottom of frame
5 year, model, SRW, DRW, etc
6 factory block? Factory shackle orientation?
7 leaf count

Thanks!

That awkward moment when someone kindly answers your question in full with what you don't want to hear :laughing:

But seriously, thank you!

My truck has 2.5" wide springs, and funky factory moulded hangars, did any trucks come with a heavy duty, long (64" or better) 2.5" spring?

Found a mid 90s Chevy dually with 63s in a junkyard, might go for that.

Today I'm going to pull the airbag setup off of a parts truck, maybe it's a band aid, or maybe a good fix?
