Neil F. 3/4 leveling spacer is nothing to worry about.

Thank you!

How do you know what the compressed length of his springs is?

How to prevent and check coil bind

Have have 2" lifted coils w/ an additional 3/4" leveling spacer in the front. 0-2" bilstien 5100's. 2" rear bumpstops and 2" body Mount bushings on the front spring perch. I tapped the perch 1/2" NCT.

When the front is disco'd how do I check to make sure I don't experience coil bind? Is it just a visual check at full bump? I have had it flexed we here the rear jounce bumper is completely squished in the cup(cup touching spring perch). The front barely touched the rubber jounce bumper but the spring looked very compressed. Not completely bottomed out. I just don't want to mess up my coils.
