lifting my comanche

i have an 88 jeep comanche, i have a three inch lift and can run 31 inch all terrains with no prob. i am concidering doing a spring over in the back and then raising the from with bigger springs in the front to compensate the back. does anyone know how much lift ill get with a spring over? also, has anyone replaced a bed on a comanche before? i have to replace mine due to rear damage. thanks!

A SOA will give you lift equal to the diameter of the axle tube + the height of the spring pack + the height of the spring perches. Usually this works out to be about 6" on stock springs. With your 3" springs, you are probably looking at 8"-9" over stock. That's going to be tough to match in the front without major mods. I would really consider going back to stock springs with the SOA, unless you are looking for a huge lift.

SOA is Spring Over Axle.
