7" IRO springs

So I do really like some of IROs stuff and I personally run a handful of it on my jeep. I was wanting to get a somewhat bigger lift spring and all i notice was there 3", 4.5", and 7". Right now i have what im guessing is some wore out 3.5" from the PO and i added a 2" bb lift to it. It sits about right but im wanting to do away with the bb lift and run all spring. Will a 7" really net 7" or will it actually squish a little? I have full IRO adj. shorties in rear and some old PO stuff up front. What should i do? Looking for around 5" with no bb lift.

The IRO stuff is spec'd as it will work. 7" is a lot for short arms.

If you haven't trimmed your fenders give us a measurement from the center of the wheel to the fender lip. That will give you an idea of how much you are currently lifted. Stock is about 18".

So you are actually at about 5.5"

The rusty's springs aren't a bad idea. You can PM kolak, he may have some options.

Yes, stock is 18" front and back.

Depending on options, how much fuel in the tank, crap in the back, or my mother in law on the hood those number can vary by an inch or so.
