New coils for rcd lift

Hi im buying new coils for my rcd lift and not sure which ones to buy??

I want the 14inch ones. Some people say they will fit and some say they dont? If i go with the 14 should i go with a 600lb or 650?

Or do i stay with the 12'' and go with like a 700 to 750 spring rate?

Thanks

a 14" coil will lift the truck some, BUT the ride quality will suffer greatly since the spring will be limited by the shock inside of it.....

you should stick with the 12" spring and get a tad bit stiffer spring.....
