IslandTJ If your Jeep is heavier than average then I strongly suggest upgrading to a spring with the appropriate rate. I've been running 2" BDS coils and have been pleased with their performance but my Jeep kept gaining weight and began to sag. At 4,200 lbs - I finally upgraded to OME's heavy duty coils and I am back at a functional height to run 33" tires.

CountryBoyJeep I've heard a lot about the H&R and Bilsteins Combo. I want to replace my 2" coil spacers though so I want 2-2.5" lift springs. BDS and OME both sound good. I considered rancho cause they had a 2.5" and the springs are a nice red but I do not like rancho's quality to much.

Wattapunk A tad more pricey but great ride quality would be 2" OME springs. Then just add an MML instead of a TC drop and you are set(unless you already did with the 1.25" BL). I would only do 3" SL if your future plans involve going to 33" tires but then the costs may go up significantly.(possibly gears,SYE,DS etc..)

ljjp10 I put H&R springs on. They gained me about 1 1/2 inches of lift and firmed my sloopy ride up. Also put the Bilsteins on at the same time. Like the combo. Good Luck

Still Need Help Picking Coil Springs

I just ordered my bilstein 5100 shocks. I heard so many good things that I bit the bullet and bought them. Now I'm debating a few things. I have 2" coil spacers, the bilstein shocks are intended for a 3" lift. Not a huge difference but it counts. I plan on ditching the coil spacers and getting 2.5" larger springs, 3" is to large with my 1.25" body lift only on 32x11.50 tires.
Any suggestion on what to do or what springs to get?
As always any help is appreciated.
