There are several options...

Most of the mass produced springs are about the same quality and should restore the stock ride height and firmer ride.

You can also try Eaton Detroit Spring.

If you want to go custom, call Fernando at Atlas Spring in Los Angeles. He can build them to whatever specs you want.

Espo Spring made in USA to order

Nice products, great service. I've used Eaton in the past with mixed results once, good results once. Used Espo 10 times, all good. Its a family business that is well run by folks who care.

St. Louis Spring may be an option if you're in the Mid West...

Spoke to them at the last Swap Meet here in town. They make all there own springs in houses. They said a couple of days turn around and there prices seemed pretty good.

The 2.25 truck springs can be a pain

April 18 2017, 4:24 PM 

I am thinking of doing a set for my 71 F100 and prices are all over the map. So far, KC seems to be pretty good, and is likely worth the drive from your location. Heard good things but havent actually had a set in hand yet

Too bad you're so far away

I picked up a 74 F250 Camper Special for the body to spruce up the 74 Highboy I drug home, was a "pet" old guy truck that had been sitting in storage since 89, was all set up for trailer and camper, and is sitting up high and proud in the rear on the Camper springs- guess I better look at the Highboy springs, might want to swap, might do a little pulling with it
