Aftermarket Coils for stock height?

Does anyone know of anyone that makes a factory height aftermarket coil? I like the stock height but would like to run a dual rate coil spring like the one ICON makes.

If not, I wonder if it would be possible to take a ICON leveling coil and cut a coil or so off to get it back down to factory height? Just thinking out loud, would love to hear any comments and suggestions.

I just cant believe the icon kit is 825 bucks man. I just bough 35 inch good year wranglers to lower mine down. Just got to sandblast my old rims and I should be lowering mine down soon. Not selling anythign until I decide if I like it down low first.

Why did you lower your truck anyways if you don't mind me asking? I remember seeing everything for sale but I don't remember if you said why.

Me?

I actually pulled everything off with plans of selling the truck. I got everything off and sold. I wasn't getting many decent offers on the truck, and I wasn't going to just give it away. It's just about paid off, and I would just end up buying another truck. Decided it's about paid off, I bought it new so I know EVERYTHING that's been done to it, and it's in perfect shape. The more I drove it, the more I realized how much more I like it, with it back down at a usable height.

So I upgraded the stereo, picked up some Harley wheels, and andded a SCT with some tunes from Matt. I absolutely love my truck now, and can use it for much more than I could when it was lifted.

Have you tried calling the other spring manufacturers like Eibach? I know when Trevor was getting my lift together for me he was originally going there for them, but the timeframe they gave him was way too long.... Just a thought?
