I've known the front end was sagging since I bought it back in September, but I put that on the backburner while I took care of a few more pressing issues.
I'm getting ready to throw some new shoes on it, so I figured it was time to take care of the front end sag so I could try to fit a little bit bigger tire on it if possible.
First off, I have a pretty big bumper on the front with a big ole hydraulic winch in it. I don't know how heavy the combo is, but I know it's more than a factory bumper.
I'm sure that having all that weight cantilevered out front for the last 14 years has put a little extra strain on the front suspension.
Here's the truck in profile. You can really see how much higher the rear is than the nose.
Here's the door sticker on my truck. I don't know if it will give any info, but it's worth a shot.
Whats a good way to get the nose back up a little without doing a lift?
Can I put the front springs from a heavier truck (ie F-Superduty)? Will that make a difference in height or will it help at all?
Here are a few more pictures.
I have more pictures. If there is anything specific that anyone wants to see, just ask.
