anybody know the actual resulting lift measurements from adding OME HD or MD springs? i compared my jeeps measurements to a user with OME MD springs and his is 1.5" higher than mine (we have same tire size)...i already have bilstein HDs but was thinking about getting OME MD springs and was wondering how much lift you think I would get? would the OME MDs be about 1.5" lift? as far as I can tell my springs are probably the originals and have 80k miles on them so they're prob not stock height anymore...problem is my 245/70/17 tires (30.5" diameter...1" larger than stock) are brand new so i dont want to lift it too much and make them look like donuts...any suggestions?

Just picked the beast up from the shop, had the new Magnaflow installed and left the stock resonator! I'm loving it, quiet at idle, no drone at highway speeds and lots of good throaty rumble in a stomp!

Go for it with the HD coils - you won't be disappointed.
Sell the current meats - go up to 265, 275, or 285's.
(GY MTR Kevlars come in 275)
