Busted coil spring help

I have a busted coil spring, ordered moog 81120 heavy duty coil spring and rancho quick lift shocks .....is this too much? The heavy duty springs are going to give some lift, but I don't know how much. I don't want to end up with a four inch lift ...... Any body install hd springs? What was the height difference?

Why not just go with the Rancho QuickLift LOADED assembly? They come with the spring already on the shock. Gives you about a 2" "Lift" if you will.

are you sure the 2 pieces are compatible? i thought you had to use the rancho spring in the rancho quicklift . something about the sizing or width of the upper and lower mount.

The Rancho Quicklift loaded does a good job keeping tires on the pavement and minimizing sway, and it's a whole lot simpler to install. Sorry, no experience with the HD springs nor do I recall anyone posting on such.

Thanks for the replys, I thought I did order the rancho "loaded" quick lift, but turns out they were just quick lift shocks, no springs. (I was blinded by the good price) so I thought ok well I'll just get the springs and have a local shop load them for me. and without thinking it through I ordered the hd springs.....moog had two options standard or hd, the hd were about two bucks more, both are "correct fit" for my truck, I ASSume then that they would work with any shock made for my 04 ....so that's where I'm at right now. Thanks again

Hopefully this all comes together and works out for you. I guess you will be reading the product descriptions a little more thoroughly from now on

I installed the Moog HD springs in my truck. I already had the Autospring 2.5 spacers. After install i did not notice any change in height, although the do say the HD springs can be a 1/4 inch higher than stock. Ride quality remained the same or better. I think the HD is the better way to go.....good luck.
