Modified OME HD or MD coils?

Calling all modified OME's!!

Finishing up purchasing my lift for my WK, and purchased my coils yesterday through Kolak (he is having a sale this month by the way), and having trouble decide between MD and HD coils up front. Here is what I will be running:

285/70/17 Duratracs
2014 Rubicon takeoff's
1.5 Spidertrax wheel spacers
5100 Blistein Adj - Front (Yes, I already have them)
5125 Blistein - Rear
JKS 2001 Rear swaybar disconnects
Rustys Rear spacer
Rustys Rear Adj Trackbar

I was going to get the HD coils all around, however, Kolak mentioned I should get the MD for the front so I don't exceed that 23" hub to fender. I do have the 5.7 Hemi, and will eventually be getting armor and hidden winch up front (not too sure when). What do you guys recommend, either the HD or MD for the fronts?

I may have asked you already are you running the 5100 or rustys spacers up front?

What you could do (I thought about this) is going the md route and if it's not tall ebough or you want more height, add the thin spacer on top of that.

Definitely an option. I'm trying to eliminate a spacer up front at all cost. If it wasn't tall enough with the MD coils I would try adjusting the struts to 1.00".

Looks great man. So you don't have the rustys spacer in the rear? Just the HD coil, correct?

Is there anyone who makes a 1-1.5 rear spacer?

I noticed the rustys is 2 which might put you above 23

I've wondered that too but couldn't figure it out. I wanted to do OME HD front and back with the .5 strut spacer in front and some kind of 1-1.5 spacer in the back. I'd like to keep the stock rake.

I don't have a spacer in the rear yet. You can use Rustys 2" if you put it in place of the coil isolator. This will give you 1.5". Remember to pick up an adjustable tracbar and some longer sway links too.

Exactly what fafafofi said, you remove the existing coil isolator and put the spacer in its place. That will make it an 1.5" higher in the rear. Still haven't made a decision on the coils. You guys are making me lean towards the HD pretty heavily!

Fafafofi, do you know, does the rear spacer go on the top or bottom of the coil?

Not sure. I haven't seen the spacers yet. Maybe the bottom so you can still use the bump stops up top

I'm 90% sure they go on top like any other rear spacer

Anybody hear how difficult it is to get the coil in once the spacer is in? All I know is I dread using those coil compressors!
