Spring codes for 2001-2003 4WD?

Does anybody have me the spring codes for a 2001-2003 Edge standard cab 4WD (3.0L) with the increased payload package? I'm looking for the torsion bars and leaf springs (It's listed on the door label).

(Is there a compilation of what generally came with what somewhere?)

Leafs: K(low rate) C(high rate)

T-bars: F(low rate) B(mid grade) 1(high grade)



It all depends on what is on the truck, cab configuration, engine, trans, bed, tow pkg, etc.




I assume your truck has a FFKK label on the door. 4x4's didn't have the F torsion bars, only B and 1.

I checked and I have "F" bars in the front and "C" springs in the rear. I'm 2WD right now and want to switch to 4WD, and was wanting to know what springs I need to go with.

I'd go 1's...but reg cab, they might be a little too stiff. Rear, you've already got the highest rate springs. Iassume your truck came stock with the tow package?

It didn't come with the tow package, but I think it did have the Payload Package #2 (?).

It looks to me that my rear spring rate is mid-stiffness. Did they never use the "3" leaf springs?

You've stated you've got C leafs....that's the highest stiffness that came on Edges/4x4's....I have never seen a #3 leaf truck ever...And I'm a junkyard rat. You're leafs are what came on the payload package and the tow packages...heaviest avaliable to my knowledge from the factory(stiffest)
