Stock height aftermarket springs?

It's time to replace the springs on my '95, but due to garage issues, I'm limited to the stock ride height. Are there any aftermarket springs that retain the stock height but provide some benefit over stock springs? If not, I guess I'll be going with a new set of stockers.

Thanks,

-Luis

Just wondering, the springs you have now, are they sagging? Too hard? Too Soft? Are you looking for a better on road ride, being able to carry more weight? Boston MA? If you ever want to hit any trails just send me a PM!

Hi Mike,

They may be sagging only slightly (after 10 years), but again, due to garage issues, I need to get the truck to its final height ASAP. I wouldn't mind replacements that handle rough/rocky fireroads a bit better since the Bilsteins I installed didn't seem to help. Maybe a progressive rate spring?

I'll send you a PM about trail riding in New England.

Thanks!

-Luis

Hmm, I would give Steve a call at Rovertym http://www.rovertym.com/ I am not sure if he has springs that are stock height.

Looks like 4x4AG has springs that are stock height http://www.4x4ag.com/html/sr_ome_coil_springs.htm

You can also check at EE https://www.expeditionexchange.com/ome/indexsprings.htm for OME springs but I don't think they offer any that keep the stock height.
