Quick question since you have the IRO kit.

Do you know if IRO's 5.5 kit comes with actual 5.5 inch coils or are they 4.5 inch with a spacer?

Yea i just saw that they don't sell 5.5" coils. Maybe they do and they're not listed. I'd call and ask. In his pics i don't see a coil spacer and they don't say that it comes with a spacer on their site

i think i asked IRO a while back and they said that their 4.5 inch springs are pretty much 5.5 springs but id call and make sure, and no there is no spacer in the kit

IRO's coils are 5.5. No spacers used. They don't have them listed but if you call they should hook you up.
