Where do you find rear coil spacers less than 2 inches. Does any other spacer fit the wk like for a Wrangler? Can't find any under 2 inches anywhere. Is there any front spacers around 1/2 to 3/4 inch out there? Having issues finding anything under 2 inches rear and over 1/4 front (don't want 2 inch spacer kit for front)

I wonder what the spring rate is compared to the OME. I may have to shoot Brent an email.

I know an XK who's recently gone that route that it worked out great.

Im running the 4" superlift springs. That's another option too. A lot of SL guys go with 6" JBA rear springs for a SL+ kit.

Their 2" spacer "kit" uses a 2" spacer up front, and a 1" spacer in the rear. That's because it's a leveling kit. If you call them, they will sell you just the rear spacers alone

Well that measurement was low because I originally had the rear coils reversed and had coil b on the driver side where I took the measurement and it was sagging on that side.

The rears are not side specific. Only the fronts are

What WieSeL said! Trax95008 you must be thinking backwards. With the OME coils the fronts are the same but the rears are side specific. Now the OEM coils are different, the fronts are side specific.

So you can go with the BDS rear spacers that measure 1" or if you want a little more the rear Rusty's spacers measure 1.5"

When I was running the modified OME lift with a bit of extra weight I was at 23" hub-fender (HD coils + 1.5" spacers). Then when I moved up to the SL I was netting 23.5" with the SL coils (new). Then I reinstalled the 1.5" spacers to bring me up to 25". A few months back I replaced the SL/spacer combo with a set of JBA 6" coils which have me sitting at the same 25" hieght. Except I need to add another isolator to the driver side because the Jeep is squatting a little.
