I don't know what happened with my KORE order but it never went through. I've been calling and calling? Are they not around anymore?

Anyway, I know someone else makes them just can't find them.

I love the rear springs. Worth the money. I got light duty. Still sit high but the coils haven't settled. I'm going to change up the valving on the shocks in the rear and it will be nice. Still deciding on fronts though. I need to figure out what I'll go with.

Anyone running 4 inch coils? What do the measure

Something very slick is on its way.

Stopped trying to contact KORE, I called and called. Won't e doing business with them. Oh well.

TMR pulled through and I am very excited to start working with them, they have the parts I like and the service I'm looking for.

New coils are in the mail as well!

Looks like I'm too late but my rear RC 2.5" coils measure 11" exactly at ride height from coil bucket to coil bucket. This is with absolutely NO additional weight in the back of my jeep, not even a full size spare. I imagine the coil measurements would be 10" with the weight of rollcage and full size spare. Sorry for the delay james, I've had a hellish past couple days and haven't had a chance to get back on JF until right now.

Brad, thanks, but I think I mentioned I needed front measurement. And I think the rears would measure around 11 because my *** end is extremely light

I was not sure since we were discussing both fronts and rears in my thread. Not sure you saw but my front coils measure 16.5" at ride height w/out a winch. I would recommend Currie 3.5" or 4.5" front coils before these depending on how much lift you want up front.

Stuck them in the stock hole to see if I like them. They are certainly different and I must say that look pretty neat.

How does everyone cut out the holes for these, hole saw I imagine. I don't want to pay a ****load for one, so may use a roto zip
