Has anyone used these after adding a lot of weight?

Ok I have a 4" lift and from the day I did the install it has settled a lot expected but as all jeepers feel its just to low now. I have a jku and about to have some PSC steel brawler rockers installed and then the next day I will be adding the PSC front steel bumper and a 12k winch I know I am gong to get some sag so I am looking for a fix wandering if these will work or what you guys think I should do?

I am not sure but you might be able to get a better set of springs for the same price? Seams the performance could be better to me if going with a different spring vs adding a spacer. But then again you wouldn't be able to adjusted anything.

I do know there are a few people on this forum running these spacers though.

Thats what I was thinking man I was really thinking about running 6" springs with that much weight. and if works run the fox 4-6" res shocks. think that would work fine I cant see why not?

I can't say for certain, but I don't see why not. Surely someone on here knows though. You could probly get in touch with one of the venders and they could give you a straight answer.

Adding spacers and reservoir shocks will not fix the issue of the added weight and settling. You need a stiffer spring rate to compensate for the added weight of bumpers, other gear, and the anticipated sag rate.

What coils do you have ?
Coils usually settle but it depends on rating/progressive or linear, if if will sag or not.
Install the bumper/rockers and see what happens. Spacers are a option or a better coil "if" there is sagging. Synergy coils are progressive,
and there are many sizes to choose from.
