Open driver side door, look at door jamb sticker under the SPR code. It'll either be a 2 digit code or a 4 digit code like this: 11CC 1C. They bounce back and forth like that the past few years. First set/or 1 digit is front spring rate. Second set/or 1 digit is rear spring rate. What that digit means as far as weight numbers? No clue...havnt found much in the line of actually what the spring rates are.

i know i know. Long night didnt get much sleep. but as far as spring rate goes ima check the door jam. Because i might be looking into lift springs only like an inch or two. Should i just call eibach and tell them my truck and see what my spring rate is?

also would i need a new control arm?
