springs

Hey all I am not a dodge owner but my good friend is. He has a bit of a problem. The other day he broke one of his front leaf springs on his ram 1/2 ton. I think it is 88 or 89. does anyone have any stock springs lying around or is there a place to get them. if not who makes a cheap small 2-3" lift?
Thanks.

Re: springs

I am in knoxville Tn. Found a spring today at a junk yard but they want 50 bucks for it. But this is his work truck and needs to get it back on the road so I guess we'll have to fork it over.

Re: springs

I got 2 stock front springs off my 84 Ramcharger, Just sitting around cause I havnt made a trip to the dump yet.
More than welcome to have them. But id suggest a wreckers first so you wouldnt have to pay for shipping.

Re: springs

I've got a '93 RC 2WD 1/2 ton 360 w/sagging leaf springs. I've been told there's no lift kit available due to dodge's axle-under....? Anyway, they are 5 layers..? Would you have anything heavy duty that would fit this ? I've been hauling my boat around & it's sags pretty good... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: springs

I am mechanically declined to say the least.... W/my RC being 1/2 ton, plus pulling a boat, will it still sag ? I've been told that SUV springs aren't even close to actual truck springs (heavy duty)...? Any suggestions ?

Re: springs

I have an'87 R/C and had a similar problem which I solved by putting Gabriel HiJacker Air Shocks on it. My trailer is rather heavy (4000 )and with 160 lbs of air in the shocks I'm riding level and stable. AutoZone got the shocks overnight for about 65 bucks and It only took me 45 min to install them in the driveway. BTW they have a lifetime warranty. Rather old technology but they work so what the heck! Oh yeah, put 30lbs in them for the street or they get a bit bouncy but the California rake looks kinda cool . . . ;-)
