That's interesting. Are you talking about the thinner coil or the thicker one? On mine, the thicker coil was at the top, and fit right in the frame mount bucket. The bottom both "popped" in place when the Jeep was settled on the coils.

Are there any coils for the rear that would only be about 3'' of lift? As well as lifting the front 3" from junkyard parts?

Do you need to adjust the air pressure in the tires to compensate for the higher center of gravity and the increase in the shock return rate?

I would be very careful with that, too much high or and you could wind up with serious safety concerns. Too high and you decrease contact patch and therefore available traction, too low
And you run the risk of pulling the tire off of the rim, though we all know lowering can help in some off road situations. Just don't go too far and don't overheat your rubber. A blowout is no fun, but at the worst time in a lifted vehicle it can roll you.

i found an eibach 2"drop for 04 tahoe and these coils with a minimum of cutting on the ends gave me a 2.5" lift in the rear and for the front i ended up using 3" exaust tube to lenghten the coil tower and add extra lower insulators on top


so rear tahoe/suburban coils is a cut to fit and the ride is smooth as stock on mine
