    I was looking over a few different Mopar parts websites and found a few different part #'s for the front coil springs for 2013-2014 1500 4x4's.

    5154615AA, 5154616AA, 5154617AA
    5154622AA, 5154623AA, 5154624AA
    5154629AA, 5154630AA, 5154631AA

    Does anyone have any information about spring rates? or if they are for the Left or Right. The 2 or 3 websites I looked at didn't specify left or right or give any spring rates. The description was the same for all the part numbers, "4WD W/O AIR SUSPENSION." The only difference was the spring codes at the end are different (example: ZVH, ZUJ, ZGC, ZFJ).

    For the Jeep JK, there were a lot more spring part numbers and the higher the number, the higher the spring rate. This meant the higher the part#, the higher the Jeep sat. Each higher number gave about a 1/4" lift. So some with X models could get 3/4" to 1.25" lift up front depending on what stock springs they had. I was hoping I could do the same with mine. Maybe get a 1" lift using higher part# stock coil springs to avoid any BS at the dealership down the road.

    Anyone have any knowledge or experience with these part numbers and their differences?

    I've yet to find any information on these springs. All are a replacement but why the different part numbers, what's the difference?

    The springs differ mostly in spring rate, which is what the OP asked about. As the OP lists 9 different springs, I'd guess it's three different engines times three different cab sizes.

    Unfortunately manufacturers typically aren't forthcoming with the spring rates. Somebody with access to the Ram parts catalog could look up the equipment codes and list which vehicles have which springs, one could deduce the the order in terms of spring rate. Or compile a table of the physical characteristics of the springs (number of windings, inner diameter, wire diameter), the spring rate can be calculated from it.

    ^^ Yup! I , and I think most others, are interested in the top spring rate to get a little lift with OEM componenets.

    I just got off the phone with the local dealer and he said for my VIN, that my front springs are 5154616AA and my rear springs are 5154649AA. I have a 2013 Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab. I'm trying to find other brand springs that will either be the same or better than OEM for less than $100 each. I think Moog makes some, but I haven't been able to find a cross-reference yet. I have Auto Zone looking for me as well. I hope the first 2 sentences help somewhat.

    Interested as I was looking into this myself before I replaced my front shocks. Might just drop an email to summit.
