I put a set of front and rear IRO springs under my ZJ. I measured before and after the lift to discover I gained 6.25" of lift. All measurements were taken with the same wheels and tires on. I did a search and found there were a few others that stated the IRO springs yield a little more lift than advertised, but nearly 2"? Could you other IRO 4.5 guys measure from the ground and the hubs to the wheel openings and post your results please. I have my measurements wrote down at work, so I don't know the exact numbers at the moment. I'm just curious as to what everyone else comes up with. I'm not worried at all about the height I got, just wondering what to expect after they settle in.
They normally yield an extra 1" or so, but your's sounds like a lot. Could be that since you have the 4.0 you are getting more, because it's lighter. Whatever the height, I can't see them sagging more than 1" over time. Usually when they give a spring height to a spring, it's what they will eventually settle at after weight and wheeling.

Yes, you can expect to have your springs settle 1 to 1.5 inches.

They will settle. But then again, I am at 3.5" spring plus 2" BB which should be 5.5" lift....yet I am at 6.5"in the front settled and 6" in the rear.

Michigan, are you using adjustable long LCA and UCA or just the stock ones? I'm really interested in adding a bit more lift than my 3" but I'm not ready for the added cost of adjustable LAs. Thoughts?
I do still have the stock control arms all the way around. I'm gonna add rear lowers first, and then uppers. I can't afford to do them all at once. I'll do the the same to the fronts as money allows. So, I'm on the lookout for some used control arms.
