and it gives me a stiff ride and i dont like it so i should just ride on smaller coils
if it gives you a stiff ride you dont want to cut more coils off...that will make it worse

and if you dont like a ruff ride go accumes or go bags :angry:

yeah a taller lighter weight coil will give you a better ride on flat streets,but when you hit bumps it will float up and down like a boat for a min-i like a stiffer ride myself-i dont mind if my shit rides like a 1960 truck lol :biggrin:
but you can run stiffer springs and accumes if you want a much better ride,and you can shut accumes off if you want to show off because you dont wanna hop ect with accumes :cool:

2 ton is still stiff to me. anything under 2 pumps 8 batts, use the stock front springs in the rear. Thats usually too stiff still for me,but better than 2 or 3 tons most guys think they should have back there

if you have stock coils they are way smaller than 2 ton coils-even fronts are maybe a 1/2 ton on a caddy....2 ton will be way stiffer than what you got now-the ones you got now are close to the diameter of a dime,2 tons are between the diameter of a nickel and a quarter...just for comparison ;)

just depends on how tall your goin...if you full stack it like you had mentioned that thing is gonna sit at or above stock height...gotta cut coils to height you want car to sit :cool:

i wouldnt know what size those would be :dunno: our city busses have air bags in the front(they drop down to let old feeble people on so they dont have to step up high) and leaf springs in rear
