Got some goodies in over the weekend. 4" Currie coils and 1.5" spacers. Installed both tonight.

The parts before install


Coil comparison. Currie on left, stock on right


Installed with some little things left to finish


I'll get a shot of how it sits during the day. Looks much better with the new coils.

Not too familiar w the coils but saw a few dudes coils come unseated on the trail so definitely hook up the spring retainers in there if there not already!

It surprised me that there were no retainers on there. With how the set up is currently, there is no way the coil can come unseated. Shocks are too short and the control arms hit the perch and full flex. I need to adjust the bumpstops before next weekend's trip, but it shouldn't be too far off.
