JBA 2.5"rear coils

Anyone have these? My OME HD springs have settled to about an inch of lift. Looking to buy replacements and was thinking about these. Thoughts, opinions and measurements if you have them please.

I have them. They said 2.5" on them, but they started out at 3" of lift when installed. They haven't sagged any that i can notice in almost 3 years and 30k miles. I did install bumpstop extensions, though, which is necessary to keep from crushing the coils.

Measures 21 3/4" from wheel center to edge of flare. It was 18 something stock.

Did you use any additional isos? My Lib has had a lean since I had the lift installed. I was thinking of adding one extra on top on the Drivers side to try & level it out.

Sorry, no, I did not. No lean. I have the adjust-a-struts, so its easy to make level.

Awesome! Thanks for the help/info. I got my new springs, new shocks,pucks & I picked up some new tools to make the install a little easier. Just gotta pick up the hardware & I should get them installed Sunday hopefully. My lean was pretty significant. Prob gonna add one Iso to the drivers side.

It's all done. Turned out pretty good. It's tall right now. I'm @ 22", bit I left the spare off because I need to replace it (dry rotted to Hell, glad I never needed it & found out before it was too late) & I'm on Empty. Definitely rides firmer than it did.

I put them on & added the Monroe load adjusting shocks that tommudd suggested. I carry a good bit of stuff & travel alot loaded. Was looking for a way to avoid that *** dragging look.

mtbiker, You're getting some lift from the shocks as well ( only case where shocks will give you a little bit more lift)

There was a pretty big difference between my OME 731s and the JBA 2.5" springs. Second pic is just about ready to put the new coils in place.
