Sagging Front Springs

How much space should you have between your bump-stops and your front axel. I only have approx 1 5/8". I think my springs are shot...What is the fix. Will a BB lift help the problem or do I need to replace the springs. Thanks.

being 10 years old, no matter the mileage, those springs are shot! Replace them with some stockers or get a 2" coil lift set.

Do the fronts wear out faster than the backs? I have this same problem

I think OME makes a 2" coil thats probl. your best bet cause it will make the ride alot more confortable and if your coils are saggin its probl. time for new shocks anyway

i run the rustys kit. it is great.

just make sure your running correct tire pressure or the rear can get a little bouncy.

Can you run a 2" BB on the rear and new 2" coils on the front untill you can change out the rears as well? Or will it make a bad ride?

i'd think you could...many people run spacers in the front and coils with no spacer in the rear

it should be fine, just the back might bounce a little bit and be a little lower than the front b/c of the sag

but for a few months it will be fine, however i would just buy a package deal and save some$$
