I am piecing my suspension together one part at a time. Money is tight so I've been moving slowly with the mods. What mod would I see the most noticeable results? My 06 2500 is currently leveled with Skyjacker coils that I want to replace in the future but I guess could keep doing the job. That said, would you get the Carli Mini leaf pack, upgrade to Carli coils, or get a Thuren track bar?

You could really pick any of these and be happy with the results. i have the thuren bar and the mini pack and both made the ride equally nicer, but i pick the trac bar cuz it would be a cost in the future n e ways when the stock one goes bad....

I'd get the track bar now since you're going to need it anyway when you upgrade the coils. I'd do the new front coils and rear leaf packs at the same time. JMHO....

Track bar, Don's front coils, then full replacement leave springs...
(I have Carli mini packs, and didnt notice THAT much off a difference, it does get rid of the washboard slop, but if I could do it again, id save up for the full replacements...)
In all fairness though, I need to get rid of these junk superlift coils up front and get some springs from Don, as well as a nice set of shocks, but thats a long ways off...$$$

You're not gonna want Don's coils unless you plan on running a 2.5" shock or better.....

They work great, but they're really soft.

Save your money till you can get the Carli kit.It will not be balanced trying to add one thing at a time.Even the track bar will need to be readjusted correctly for diferent ride heights.
