new winch and bumper sagged my springs

I just installed my new front bumper and winch - lost about 1" on my OME springs - they are the heavy duty - was looking for a solution - saw the new JKS ACOS adjustable coil over spacers - they claim you can adjust from 1.25 to 3.5" of lift - has anyone used them - what are the results - thanks curt

a guy in my 4x4 group has them.. he likes them for what purpose they serve.. he got them to solve his problem with his winch and front bumper too.. but the minimum lift is 1.25'' so if your only an 1'' short.. your front will sit a little higher.. id get all 4.. and just adjust the front ones more than the rear

Or, you could just spend $40 and get some of these: Link

Or these on Ebay

The JKS adjustables look like a great concept, but they seem a little pricey for what you want to accomplish.

I have a ARB bull bar and winch on my TJ... stock suspension... I swapped in some XJ front coils and my height is a-ok. When I lift, I'll get taller springs.

added winch and bumper and lost 1"

I forgot to mention - When I put on my OME lift - I added 3/4 terraflex spacers in the front - so If I remove them I would need to add 1 3/4 in spacer- thats why I thought the JKS would work - thanks for all the replys - this forum is great - I have received many good ideas and saved myself bucks not putting on stuff I dont need

actually.. you unbolt the bumpstop cup and put the spacer in between it and the coil mount.. even if the coil came out.. the spacer shouldnt move
