Title: 2wd vs 4wd springs
Post by: m.sainz12 on January 11, 2016, 01:39:57 AM
I know this is a dumb question and ive looked everywhere. Does anyone know if the sprigs for a 2wd are different that springs for a 4wd 2nd gen?

Springs do settle and may wear out and compress more but you should measure your stock 4wd one and just remove 1 2wd to make sure. maybe confirm what i have read.

Well after I posted the OP I did some more research and they are different p/n fo 2wd and 4wd and found a post were Greg from prg states they have different spring rates. I'll be getting  spring compressor Friday and swapping them out. I also noticed before my ball joints went out the front end felt like there was too much weight up front. Kinda like a boat going over wake at low speed

are you planning on keeping the 5100s?
If so you could just run a stiffer spring and upper control arms and you could get more lift

More travel you will need coil overs and a long arm kit or boring titan swap
