Ride height

Hey fellas. So I sold a 2007 Silverado classic a good while ago, it was 2wd and level from the factory. I just purchased a 2004 sierra 2 Wheel Dr. which is significantly lower in the front. I would like it to sit level like the Silverado did. Are there different coil springs? Id love to use factory stuff not an aftermarket lift kit if possible.

Re: Ride height

Different engine combos had different spring rates. I know my 02 Silverado and 06 Sierrra, both WT models with V6s set lower than my 07 classic Silverado with a 4.8 V8

Re: Ride height

I put 2 inch lift springs on the front of mine. Then tried to put regular dampening shocks rather than Bilsteins. The regular were not long enough. I want to remove the Bilstiens for regular dampening shocks because the w in lift springs are firmer than factory.
