I tried looking on groups.io and searching for sprinter, sprintervan and yahoosprintervan I find no group there.

I am interested in lifting the front suspension of a 2005 3500. Can anyone offer a suggestion where to start?

Post originated in 2007. I didn't find anything when I last looked, last year, when yahoo announced the end of yahoo groups.

Yahoo basically shut down its groups effective December 14, 2019. I moved a lot of material over when Sprinter-Source was created, but not everything.
