X code springs

If you switched your front springs to X code, where did you find them? Our local dealership wants $230 each. Local salvage yard never has them. I want to raise the front of my truck, and help out with the plow in the winter.

Not sure. I'm open to suggestions. I would like the truck to carry the plow better and raise the front a bit.

I heard about the track ball issue. Don't know anyone at the dealership so I I'm going to try the local spring shop and see what they have to say.

They are the plow package and will raise the front end about 2 inches. Nice truck!

Last place I'd ask..haven't seen many of that them know squat.

Nothing to ask..every 2" of lift will shift the axle 1/2-3/4" its Geometry nothing can change it.
