If you are looking for springs, get some V-codes from a Superduty and a RSK.
Will ride better than stock springs, and at least around here you can find Superduty springs for dirt cheap.

Chrome don't get ya home

Also big block are the same as diesel.

just remember 16-27 year old springs are most likely worn out

You are looking up aftermarket. I am going to guess the 2.03 are going to have 3 leafs and ride like CRAP
