I need to get new springs, the old factory springs that came with my SOA swap are shot (last weekend's fun run pushed them over the edge). For comparisons sake, what is the arch of new factory springs? Depending on how far mine have sagged, I may want to get 1" or even 2.5" lift springs. BDS and OME are likely candidates.
My heep is SOA, so my spring perch is on the bottom of the spring. For most of you running SUA, I figure a string pulled from shackle eye to shackle eye and measured to the spring perch, plus the thickness of the spring if SUA, would give me a ballpark of the springs arch.
Search didn't really give this info for factory springs, other than a single post stating "flat, or slightly bent". Anybody got a more specific number?
For what it's worth, I have a hardtop and about 220 LBS of rear bumper/spare tire hanging off the back, and the rear springs now have a negative arch of about 1/2". Add a couple passengers and gear, and the springs are just about hitting the bumpstops while parked. Yeah, they're toast.
