Stock Spring Rate?
Does anyone know what stock spring rate is on dbxl/mtxl? I have MIP springs and would like to know if they would help.

Stock Spring Rate?
The spring may fit but I don't think it will help the problem with the shock is the holes in the piston and having to use diff fluid for the shock work
The best I ever got them to work was 9000 fluid and the spring from DDM was a little stiffer
I also put 5ive shocks on it and they were better
If you do that you need the front ones off the truck only they work on both ends
The rear off the truck will bend the dog bones where they come out the diff cup
So you will need two sets of fronts

I saw the DDM springs and they don't give a rate either. I have 12lb rear and 8.75lb front springs but can't find out what stock or DDM is to know if it will help.

I think the black DDM were the heaviest I could find and I run them all the way around
