Only thing I know I'm getting for Christmas so far is a bottle of Crown Royal Reserve from my aunt and uncle. That's a $100 bottle of premium whiskey and I love me some Crown.

Yep.

I've got an old lower back sports injury. Without proper lumbar support my back hurts within 30 minutes or so. I've got no problem driving 3-4 hours in my Jeep now. The stock seats are fine....they just lack any semblance of decent lumbar support and side bolsters.

So I've been half-assedly entertaining the idea of dropping down to the h&r rear coils. I haven't read through that whole thread yet, but I'm thinking they may give me around 2" of lift since I have nothing in the rear. The is kinda starting to eat away at my OCD, and I figure "Why lift the front, when I can lower the rear?"

Again, just entertaining the idea. It definitely wouldn't be any time soon that's for sure.

So you want to have the H&R coils in the front and stocks in the back?

Lift the front if you need to even it out. H&R springs are crap. They are just stock length coils with stiffer spring rates. Not worth the time or money.

See, I hadn't done that much research so I didn't know that.

Ok so the rear BDS gives you nothing and you want the h&R springs to get you a full 2"?

Might I recommend the RC 2.5" springs? It'll still sit high though. Maybe you should bump up to 3" fronts and 2.5" rears?

My rear 3" give me right at 4" so 2.5" rears should look really nice.

Or he could just add a 1" spacer to the front and be done with it. Don't make things so complicated.

Idk. Light duty OME's (don't know number) may get it to sit right at 2" or near it.

This is more for future planning. I'd like to be on 35's with 2" front and rear and no spacers.
