Sounds good. Thanks for the part number! You have definitely helped make my jeep upgrades go easier. Maybe too easy....

Re: Damn Jeep (Dave's pitiful suspension upgrade thread)

Hi Dave,
Do you remember what your rustys 2 1/2" hub to fender measurements were before this upgrade? I'm thinking about getting the 2 1/2" coils also.
Thanks

Re: Damn Jeep (Dave's pitiful suspension upgrade thread)

Sorry Joe I never measured the Rusty's or even stock but I can measure it with the spacers in if you would like.

Re: Damn Jeep (Dave's pitiful suspension upgrade thread)

21.5" front and 21.25" rear Bottom of fender lip to center of hub Rusty's springs run a 12# heavier spring rate than stock perfect for a WJ IMO. Springs probably have about 8k mi on them so they may have settled a bit though I doubt it. Here's how it sits now with the springs,3/4" spacers and 245/70/17s
