Your opinion - replacement springs

Hey All,

The springs on my '94 Regular Cab 2WD Pickup are getting pretty sad. It's stock other than 15" aluminum wheels, 215/70R-15 Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S tires, and Rancho RS5000 shocks. Most of the time it's a daily driver, with occasional landscape work that could have 1000lbs in the bed for short rides. Anyone have a preferred source for stock ride height springs? NAPA and the dealership are the first two that come mind. NWOR seems to make some nice ones, but I don't know if heavy duty springs would be right for stock(ish) ride height.

I pretty much buy all my springs from General Spring out of Kansas City

Even with shipping they beat all the local places .

Long ago my NAPA did not carry Springs maybe things changed .

The dealer might give you sticker shock

I'd try a set of air-adjust rear shocks or some overload airbags added to the rear. I've known a few people with these setups on their 2wd Toyota pickups used for work or hauling, they work well and are under $100
