Ooooookkk so I am assuming you want 2" of lift? Anymore than that you will need a superlift or you will majorly screw up the angles. Now for a 2" lift you will need coil spacers only on the rear, since you will be using the adjustables in the front which will allow you to set preload directly on the perch of the strut. You don't need spacers for 265/70/17's on factory wheels. You will need to stick with factory coils only for this setup.

Well after some poking around incognito on some other forums, someone has stated durring jba's early testing on the libby headers showed and average gain of 25 horsepower across a few testers. Now they didnt say the source specifically or dyno used or even if thats a crank number. Personally i feel its a legit number as seen by my .3 sec quicker 1/8th runs

Ops in my half asleep state didn't read 2 inch metal spacers..ya i agree with Josh 5100s will do you good with stock coils or you can do 4600s and use the spacers in the front too.

Re: Talk about ANYTHING WK thread.

Thanks for all the replies fellas!!! I was thinking ome hd springs would work with 5100 and 2" spacers in rear. I was trying to get away from oem springs. And if ome hd's would work with spacers I'm open to other suggestions on the brand of spring. Front adj bilsteins with new springs sounds good (no spacers) Not looking to go over 2.5" so no superlift this rig, maybe when I get a jk. Oh and the wheel spacers is more for stability and look. I know the size tires I'm looking at would require them. Maybe go 1.25" instead of 1.5"? Keep it coming, you guys are great!!!

265/70/17's shouldn't need spacers. Spacers can sometimes break if not of the best quality. If it's only for looks I would say go with a 1.25". Ome springs will not work with the 5100's front struts since they are designed to be lift springs for only the ome shocks. However if they make a 2" rear coil you could use that with the rear shocks and not have to deal with spacers. I don't know anyone who makes an aftermarket quality spring in stock height for our jeeps.

You CAN get new wheels with that offset. But yes if I didn't have my current wheels I'd deff throw spacers

Ummm where? On our WK's front struts? Remember we have struts so the coil is one unit with the shock, so a lift coil will be too big. Like I said on the rear shocks yes you can use ome springs. Correct me if I am wrong...
