315/75/16 on an 03??? Help please

Looking to put some 315/75/16's on my 03. Right now suspension is stock with quite a bit of sag on the front springs. My plan is to put the pro comp 22410 springs on the front to get the front up. Will that put me level or will I need a block for the rear? And will I need anything else up front if I go with those springs. Plan on using a 2 1/2 or 3 inch spacer for the rear wheels. Not sure what one would work better. Any advice there would be great as well. Thanks for the help it's much appreciated!!!

I'm not sure about those springs but if they level the truck the 315s will fit . They will be tight and the will rub at full lock (turn) . The rears will clear everything , you will want a 2 inch bolt on spacer . That will give you pleanty of room between the tires to prevent rubbing . I had 315/35/16 s on my 99 on the stock 16x6.5 inch wheels .

those springs give 4 inches of lift. they will clear 35's no problem.

you might need a 2 in block in the rear.

you will need an adjustable trac bar or trac bar relocation braket, drop pitman arm, extended sway bar links too.

found all these parts on summit pretty cheap too

and new shocks too lol

pro comp 22210 springs and an extra leaf spring in the rear, bought it this way.

back is actually higher cause my front springs are sagging.

been throwing around the idea of getting a set of 22410 springs up front, but it sits pretty level when towing something anyways.

might just get some new 22210 springs up front though.

is your truck a f250 or f350?

f350's have a 1 inch taller block in the rear, so you might be just perfect with 22210 springs up front and leave the back alone.

im running 285's with tons of room left to go bigger.

mine is a 350. I was thinking of going with the 22410 springs to see how it sat.. If it was a little nose high I would then get a new block for the rear. I wouldn't mind a little lift out of it anyway.. I would assume I would need new longer front shocks as well?

ya the 22410 springs claim 4 in of lift.

you would need shocks, trac bar or relocation bracket, extended sway bar links, drop pitman arm.

about 500 bucks through summit last i looked.

the 22210 give about 2.5 in of actual lift, im guessing the 22410 give about 3.5 in actual lift.

It's an early 99 so it had the factory 4 inch rear blocks . I left that alone and simply leveled the front . It brought the nose up 5 inches . I did have to replace the front shocks to accommodate the leveling kit . The kit came with a track bar relocator bracket (kit was specific to an e-99) . Then I added the 35s and that was good for another 3 inches (factory tires were 29 inch tall the 315s are 35) . It sits perfectly level . Looks and drives great .
