Ok so stronger strings in the front will do what I need. Can anyone recommend an exact spring for the front? I've got an ARB bullbar and a winch. All I want to do is get the front back up to the original height. The previous owner added the bullbar and winch without changing the front springs. I'm keeping the rear stock as its plenty high enough.
My suspension shop does King Springs and said "The KTFS 101 is a standard height coil that is about 30% stronger that the factory coil. Given that you have additional accessories on the vehicle it will likely lift the front from where it is now but isn’t designed to go above the factory ride height (will still be nose down)"...is this spring the best option, or is there a more suitable spring?
EDIT: OK I understand these springs are available... can anyone tell me which one I should get? I'd like the ute to be level if possible, so the KTFS 101 (standard height) may be too low. Technically I can raise the front 20mm extra legally (already got bigger tires), so a spring that will raise it 20mm above stock that takes the weight of my bullbar and winch would be ideal, if that makes it level. Ute is single cab trayback.
