if you cut a half of a coil off that is 2 inches...whatever you do dont cut a full coil off if so..then you wont have enough spring to hold the truck up and you'll be riding with about 1/2 clearance for your control arms to move..and any hard bumps you'll feel it and rattle your teeth...

just spend the money on coils it's safer, and a lot better of a ride.
you said your truck rides like ass already..why?

mine with a 2-6 on 265-40-22s rode great...except for your pot holes..but you cant be picky with that.

I'm not saying you are wrong because they are all different and that may be what it took for yours.I would start with about 1/2 a coil which will go somewhere near an inch. start slow. if it is the stock coil it shouldn't make it ride any worse.
