Anyone know the free length of the 2.5 liter, 2.5" spring?

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.

I see. I used to. It's gone now.

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.

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.
