thanks. those are very helpful.
whats your opinion what would be better for leveling though,
1. Just a leveling spacer or
2. new coils that are longer that also lift without getting spacers.

Sorry for so many questions.

I trust new coils more since they would be seated properly in the coil buckets, versus using the spacer which sets the coil up higher in the bucket.

What do you guys think the cheapest that the coils would run for? I've seen a pair for $130 and others for over $200. i would like to stay under 200 if possible if possible

Good guess on the 2.3L that was correct.
so for the super cap 125 inch wheel base i would want this Frt Susp; 2WD; 125 inch WB; Heavy Duty; Variable Rate.
and this does do the leveling slash lift in the front correct. it does not say anything toward that, thats why i ask. And I am really liking that price!!
