Default leveling coils

Where is a good place to buy leveling coils for my truck? ( 1997 4x4 ). I painted my rims over the weekend, and when I room the driver side front tire off I noticed my coil is broke clean through up twards the top. I have wanted to do a leveling kit anyway so I figured how's a good time but idk where to get the bigger coils from?

If your talking about getting F150 coils to lift it then I'd try the junk yard first and if your just wanting coil spacers then Ebay or Amazon. Make sure to buy the better quality ones not the cheap plastic jobs. I'm sure someone else will come along with better info shortly.

Does is matter what year f150 coils I get? And would I need to take my truck in after I replace the coils to get the camber adjusted?

80-96 F150s or just get a set of leveling coils from rough country. Saves you the rough ride and A lot easier to install.

X2 on the Rough Country coils. I don't know why someone brought up the f150 coils when they lift the front end higher then a level stance. If you want a LEVELING KIT, go with the Rough Country coils. And someone brought up spacers when he has a broken coil..... He clearly said he needs coils(not spacers).

I like the idea of having new springs personally, but the spacers are more budget friendly. But get the aluminum ones not plastic ones(there known for cracking). But if you have the $120 get new coils... And an alignment afterwards. From what I hear it's tricky on some TTB trucks to get aligned.

yes you will still need a alignment. Be sure to get the metal spacers and make sure it comes with a stud extender(I beleave it is called). There's people on here that will know more, but thts pretty much all you need.

Um, I thought you had a BROKEN coil? If so, why arent you replacing it with NEW coils?
