Junkyard Find

Went to my local Junkyard today and stumbled across a nice find on a '93 ZJ.

4 OME Coils (Front are 930s, not sure on the rear)

4 OME Shocks

All of these are practically brand new. Does anyone know how much lift this will give me? Anything else I need to go with these to make clear 31s?

Depends on if they're the HD coils or not. HD's give about 2.5 IIRC and the regular springs give like 1.5

Ok. Thanks. I'll order 1" BB and call it day then.

I installed OME HD springs and got a full 2" of lift, which was enough (with some minor plastic trimming) to mount my new 31" AT's. IMO, my Jeep is at a perfect trail-ready height with this combo, and my wife with her bad arthritic hips can still get in and out without too much trouble.

Good score!!!

Ok. I'm pretty sure this are the medium duty springs. I'm probably gonna order new trackbars, and coil spacers from Kolak and hope I get close to 3" total by the time I'm done.
