|Cons_Table||Haha fair enough. I also have an 8.8...so that was something I was going to ask him about. I was thinking that putting a HD spring in the rear may set the rear end higher than a standard spring. So I didnt know if there was something we could do with a longer spring or a stiffer spring in the front to even out/compensate for that. Sounds like calling him is the best plan haha|

I put my lift on just over a year ago. At the time I did not have a winch, and he shipped me the proper springs for that setup.
Then I swapped in an 8.8, which jacked the rear end up due to the larger tube diameter of the axle housing. So I put a 3/4" spacer in the front. This helped but didn't level it back out. Now that I have installed the winch on the front is is very noticably raked. I called him and he said I needed the other coils now.
To answer your question, I can't say for sure how much it has sagged since so much else has changed on it in the last year.

|Ageless Stranger||Call Dirk at DPG off road. Great guy to do business with. I'm about to replace my fron OME coils with the heavier ones since I've added ~100 lbs to the front bumper.|

Where can I get the best deal on OME springs?
So Ive got some extra cash and feel that I should spend it on more important parts rather than the "fun" parts. I have come to the conclusion that it should probably be on new springs all around. Here are my reasonings...
*When I bought my "lift kit" I did not know any better what was good and what was not (this was before I discovered the forum). I bought a skyjacker kit, which honestly has held up decent for me, but I have realized there are better products on the market.
*I DO have a lifetime warranty on my springs, shocks, and bushings...however the policy they tried to tell me on my springs kind of pushed me away.
This makes me think I should get some new springs. I am thinking I want the TJ heavy duty rate for the rear since I have a camper I tow, but I am not quite sure what I want for the front yet.
So my questions...
Is OME the way to go for new springs?
What rates should I go for...front and rear?
If OME...whos the best person to go through?
I currently have a 2.5" lift, so I am assuming I should get new 2.5" springs...
