Official "I have relocated my rear springs" thread

Let's play the Do Not's:

-this thread is not to discuss CA's
-this thread is not to discuss shocks
-this thread is not to discuss springs
-this thread is not to discuss axles

So what's this thread for?

This thread is for those that have already performed a rear spring relocation, to discuss their results, ask questions to others that have also relocated springs, & to post if you noticed a change in ride quality both on the road and off.

If possible, when posting please take the time out to fill these in:

-How tall of lift did you have before the install of the rear springs?
-How tall of lift do you have after the install?
-Would you do it again if you total your Jeep and get another Jeep?
-Why or why not to the question above?
-What spring relocator kit did you use?
-How long have you had your springs relocated?
-What problems did you run into during your install?
-How often do your drive on road vs off? (rough percentage please)

Thanks in advance!

And yes, if you run coilovers in the rear that does count.

I've removed my springs for coilovers f&r.

-Before: Rig had a 4" of suspension lift and 35's
-After: Has ~4" of suspension lift (same as before only with a 9" stretched wheelbase) and is rolling 39.5's.
-Yes I would do it again.
-It is more stable and performs better in all terrains now
-Used Poly performance's coilover mounts f&r
-Rig has been done about 13 months and wheeled in 6 states since.
-see build thread in my sig
-I try to wheel a couple weekends a month (and occasionally dd so I can wheel on my lunchbreak: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAajxGmsRoc )

Mudb8 moved mine (my welding skills are marginal). I have the RC 2.5" lift and am very happy. Gained some compression room, better ride.

I'm planning on relocating my rear springs over the winter.

My plan is to cut the coil mount off. Then i'm probably going to notch the rear frame portion to run ballistic fab's upper mounts

Something similar to what is seen here.
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/up...tretch-822417/

Originally I was thinking of cutting the frame mounts off and move them back, but I think I will just end up making new control arms out of square lower arms and round upper arms and reuse the currie JJ's from my Clayton kit for the time being.

Not 100% sure where the shocks will be mounted. I will have to see how much stretch there will be. I may notch the frame and run F250 or similar mounts.
