V8 coils.

I have the UC package on my limited. In doing a F>R so will my UC coils give me too much lift in the rear? Or should I just go and buy V8 ones? I was thinking if it does go to high ad a .75 puck in the front. Thanks.

You just solved your own problem. Just add the pucks in the front if it's too high. Depending on the mileage, the springs may have sagged to the perfect height.

Yeah I guess so haha. It currently has 167,000. Would you know how much lift it will give me if they are not sagged? Just want to have the pucks in hand just in case.

The UC should put the rear at 4.5". So the 1/4" rake in the front won't even be noticeable with the pucks. But with that many miles, I would guess you would net around 4.25"
If you haven't already, I would look into some adjustable CA's. If not long arms.

I did a front to rear with UC coils. many years ago. I got them new. In the rear I got 3.5" and added a 1" puck. I got Rubicon Express 4.5" coils for the front.

How did you only get 3.5? A stock v8 coil nets 3.5 in the rear, so it's only logical that the UC would be taller.
Unless I'm an idiot and am missing something.

That's what I'm staying at 3.5 so I won't have to buy adj. or long arms. But hopefully it doesn't not give me too much lift.

Maybe the RE coils netter more than 4.5" but we are splitting hairs here. My set up was RE 4.5" coils front and front up country coils in the back with a 1" puck. Looks pretty level to me.
