    with 100,000 miles on the vehicle I would have replaced the springs as well , along with the rubber parts.

    Are they the 5100's? Did they lift the front at all? I'm looking at leveling blocks and would prefer shocks instead.

    Shocks will not add ride height. You can install a new coil over spring and you might get some height that you have lost from sagging . Sure, the truck might look like it sits a little higher right after install, but as soon as you drive it a mile it settles and is back to the height it was at.

    As aid above No higher height just a nice ride I do think they are the 5100's...
