Not off the top of my head. But I can measure. I know they stay seated with the 14"s at full flex.

From looking at your jeep you modified your existing shock mount, which is a great mod to get balanced suspension travel. I already have the spring installed and I have the bilstiens for a 4" lift in place. I am not worried about unseating. Just trying to get some numbers down for different coil springs and cannot for the life of me find this info online. And I do not want to pull them off the jeep. You have a working build thread for your jeep NYGLT56?

Installed this kit about a year ago... The springs are solid and work as advertised. I did ditch the front 2.2 shocks for some bilstein 5100's great ride with this combo. Running 33x12.50 on 3.5 bs. I did add .75 spacers in the back.

Without the lift I run 31's just fine. So, larger would fit, up to a point, with the lift.

If you are actually gonna wheel it you might want to consider the other factors as well that are more important than tire clearance. Not sure what rig you're running, but Steering upgrades, Differential/axel upgrades, gearing, etc. all go along with bigger tires. On a factory D35 differential with 3.07s you really don't want to go any bigger than 33 anyway. I have 3.73 gearing and 33x12.5s and it's even pretty sluggish. Best thing to do (but the least fun, unfortunately) is design a plan for your jeep, what you're ultimate setup (tire size, lift, fenders, etc.) and work your way inside out. Do all the upgrades you need to have a bulletproof rig with your chosen tire size and trail difficulty. Then, once you have the interior components to support them, purchase the tires.

Just my humble two cents after doing my build a bit out of order and regretting it a bit.

2004 TJ RME, 3:73s D30/44, RC 2.5", Factory Alcoas wrapped in 33x12.5 Pro Comp Xterrains spaced 1.5" (3.75" total BS), Smittybuilt stinger, Procomp Rear Bumper, ToughStuff Onboard Air/11 Gal Tank, Skids galore

I bought a set of BFG 31's after I installed this lift kit a couple years ago... still running them and like them just fine for what I do. However, there is plenty of room for at least 33's too... any larger than that though and I'm of the opinion that you'd be better off with more lift.

I installed this same kit this past weekend. Still need to get alignment and track bars adjusted correctly but it feels very much like stock shocks. Once I get some more miles on them I will write more. As for now, I need to install the t-case drop kit and installing a drop pitman arm.

If you drop the pitnam arm you will need to drop the front track bar as well or you will get bumpsteer. The best, IMO, choice is to just not install the drop pitnam arm.

I have 4 new zone hydro shocks for sale...PM for a price.

Spend your money on a 1/2" BL and 1" mml... Money would be a hell of a lot better spent

I've got the 2.5" lift and the 1.25" body lift with 1" mml. Here's the end result! 2004 Sport

I ended up skipping the drop pitman arm. After getting it aligned, it rode fine. I looked and the track bar and the bar that links to the pitman arm are parallel to each other. All is good now except for the fact that all of my bolts to the skid plate are rusted so bad they basically welded themselves. I broke one free but it just sits there and turns. Nothing is ever easy...lol Once the t-case drop kit is on, I believe the drive line vibration will be next to nothing. It will be easier to clean also..
