FRONT END DROOP

my 97 sags in the front (previous owner had plow) i want to raise but not spend a ton of money, thought about blocks. Air bags or new springs to costly.

For the front, I'd do the shackle reversal.

My truck was sitting on the bumper stops, every bump in the road would make me chip a tooth. I asked for a three inch lift and got about six when it was done. I had to lower the side step to get a foot up to get into the truck. Then I had to install grab handles to not fall out getting out. And on and on... Now the front is to high and the rear looks like it is holding a ton of rock..

blocks in the front is very dangerous and also illegal on the road. get some add-a-leafs anywhere b/t $80 to $140 dollars. the best to bring ur front back.

After looking it over real good I'm just going to do new springs on both sides being that it is a saftey concern.
