New OEM springs, ride height change?

Greetings,

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th.

Tried searching existing threads for info on this. If I missed it just let me know.

Current lift details in sig. I'm finding myself wanting to go a little higher. Truck has original springs, 15 years of load bearing. Have to assume some level of sag at this point? Considering just putting new OEM springs on each corner. What I don't know is what I could realistically expect with the new springs. Obviously not worth the effort to gain a 32nd of an inch. Different story if it nets 3/4 inch and some ride quality. Input/advice appreciated if anyone has been down this road.

Mods, if this needs to be in the Suspension forum please move. Started here since it's a question specific to 4th Gen.

Thanks!

Hard to say - maybe 1/2 inch I think from many others experience. Consider going to 5th gen coils. Usually they can be found free or cheap and will net 3/4-1 inch. They also have about 75 more pounds of load

Moog FJ springs, look in the sticky section for the thread.
