Post Front suspension sag
My swb vit has developed a negative camber, it appears that the front springs have gone weak and coupled with a heavy front bumper the wishbones are sitting nearly horizontal at rest.

Can I fit lwb diesel springs to return it to normal ride height and compensate for the bumper. According to the spec (supplex springs) the lwb diesel springs are 15 mm longer than the swb petrol ones.

Sparks has just fitted a set of lwb diesel 3" springs in his to compensate for the winch bumper, although he is running Calmini arms, which require a longer spring anyway.
Short answer, can't see why not, go for it.

Think I still have some V6 springs lying around, let me see if I can find them. They're beefier than standard springs.

As Ant said. My springs were not coping with the weight of my truck and all its accessories, I bought 3 inch lwb diesel springs from jimnybits and they have worked a treat. I am carrying a lot of weight on my truck though.
