Stock Front Coil Springs?

Does anyone know how tall the stock front coil springs are on a 2014 R/T?

Actually better yet, if it is the springs in the front of your truck, PM me the vin I will be able to get you a measurement. Springs are sent from Chrysler with just a tag on them, not in a package, so they also give measurements for them that you could use if you had to ship them. I can use these measurements to give you the height. This will be the unloaded height which I imagine is what you're looking for.

It's a 2 WD. The vin is: 3C6JR6CT1EG226092.

What I'm looking to do is find another type vehicle, Drango, Challenger, etc., who's spring are somewhere between the stock springs of my truck and the BellTech 2" lowered spring. I installed 2" drop spindles, love the stance, but front end was a tad, as in about 1/2-3/4", too low. I reinstalled the stock springs, and now i have way too much clearance. She's bull frogging on me and quite simply looks like crap.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I would take it to a place that can make you a set. Way up here we have a company called United Spring & Brake that primarily deals in things like that for tractor trailer units but they do build custom build leaf springs, u-bolts, and coil springs. Not to mention they do this for usually a fraction of OEM prices. Perhaps you have a similar type of business near you?
I will be at work tomorrow and checking in on here. I can check some numbers to see if I can find a spring around that height but the biggest problem is that I would have no information as to the spring rate and if it will actually fit your application. It would purely be trial and error.

Exclamation

I would think spring rate, material quality, etc. would all be important considerations...

If the coil spring is too long, Trim it using a cutting wheel. On my 03 I cut about a quarter of a coil at a time until I got the fender gap where I wanted.

Exactly. I wish I could find a coil spring comparison chart so I could match up the tension, etc, with the size that I need. Any idea where I can find something like that?
